New legislation this year will introduce mandatory reporting of child abuse to Ireland for the first time. Counselors and psychotherapists will be among the designated professionals who will be obliged to report disclosures of childhood abuse made by clients, even if the client is now an adult.

This workshop will present clear information about the new legislation and reporting obligations and will explore the impact of mandatory reporting on the therapeutic relationship.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • The legislative framework and reporting obligations
  • Reporting to the statutory authorities
  • Impact of mandatory reporting on the therapeutic relationship
  • Strategies for managing mandatory reporting

The workshop will be facilitated by One in Four psychotherapists and advocacy officers with experience of managing mandatory reporting of sexual abuse.

A light lunch will be provided. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.
