While working late in your position as assistant director of educational
assessment at the Psychological Assessment Institute in Rancho Cucamonga,
California, you observed one of the maintenance personnel on a coffee break
watching videos of what appears to be children posing nude. Since you are a
licensed psychologist working in California, you consider whether you need
to report this under Assembly Bill 1775 amendment to the Child Abuse and
Neglect Reporting Act. In other states, domestic violence must be reported
if you are an employee of a healthcare facility. Whether the Psychological
Assessment Institute falls under that category would have to be determined.
In other states, there is a duty to warn or protect.
For this assignment, review the laws and professional regulations in your
state regarding mandated reporters and other reporting requirements. Cite
the specific state regulations and find all relevant ethical principles and
standards to the 2002 “Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of
Conduct.” Be sure to include a discussion of the 2010 Amendments. No matter
the state or country, include a discussion of your moral obligation.
Support your assignment with at least seven scholarly and professional
resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate
scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
