Introduction to Mandated Reporting of Suspected Child Maltreatment 

Learn the basics of mandated reporting in this 8 minute video! 

When I was just starting my MSW program as a student at Fordham University's Graduate School of Service in 1998, I had no idea what they meant in my practice class when they said "we are all mandated reporters", now. What is a mandated reporter? Why? What is "mandated"? What is "reported"?


My name is Kathryn Krase, Ph.D., J.D., M.S.W., and Principal Consultant with Krase Consulting, & I am an expert on the professional reporting of suspected child maltreatment. I have authored multiple books and articles on this subject & have many years of experience consulting with government and community based organizations to develop policy & practice standards.

Inside this FREE video guide, I share easy-to-follow information on the following:

  • What is Mandated Reporting?

  • How do I know if I'm a Mandated Reporter?

  • How Mandated Reporters can help children everywhere


This video guide is an introduction to Making The Tough Call — a project I've built to serve as a way to educate, inform, and raise awareness about mandated reporting of suspected child abuse and neglect; the good, the bad, and the really bad.

Together, we can learn how to best support children everywhere & keep them safe.
