Description

The goal of this course is to provide participants with a basic introduction to ethics, confidentiality, HIPAA and mandated reporting. Although it is aimed at violence peer counselors, this course is suitable for anyone who provides peer support services and/or works with young adults. The information covered in this course include:

  • The role of a mandated reporter
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • How confidentiality and minor consent work 
  • 5 Core Professional Values of the Counseling Profession

Through this course of 6 lectures, over 40 minutes of video content, informational handouts and 2 quizzes, participants will be able to understand how the law defines child abuse/neglect, articulate what the law requires of a mandated reporter, identify potential evidence of child abuse, know the process for reporting child abuse, understand the basics of HIPAA, and recognize the importance of confidentiality and professional ethical practice.
