Conduct an Investigation of Regulations and Mandatory Reporting Responsibilities

Conduct an Investigation of Regulations and Mandatory Reporting ResponsibilitiesYour assignment this week is to prepare an
informational memorandum for newly hired social workers in your state.

Social workers understand the value base of the profession
and its ethical standards, as well as relevant laws and regulations that may
impact practice at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels.
Practicing social workers must understand the requirements
for identifying abuse or neglect and how to report instances.

In your pamphlet, outline the regulations
and requirements for the state in which you live or intend to practice specific
to mandatory reporting. Next, identify the types of neglect and abuse social
workers must be aware of when working with clients. Be sure to include types
that impact vulnerable populations. Document how social workers should report
these cases to the correct agencies.
