An Informative & Educational Artlcle

I read this article and it does bring into the public discourse the issue of mandated reporting by social workers. This article has provided a basis for further action to enhance mandated reporter laws and policies in States where social workers seem to be placed in a gray area of reporting elder abuse as required for maltreatment and physical abuse of children. This is necessary consistent with our core value of the dignity and worth of all persons, considering that older people should always be treated with dignity and respect at all times as they age with grace.
