Effective in 2015, the new Child Protective Services Law, enacted by Pennsylvania Legislature takes effect. There will be sweeping changes to all aspects of the law, from mandated reporting, to the definitions, of child abuse and neglect, to the rights of individuals accused of abuse, to the rights of children in abusive situations. Psychologists must stay current on all aspects of the law as this law will impact virtually everyone whose practice involves children, parents or families.

1, Educate Psychologists about the differences between the old and new Child Protective Services Act.
2. Teach the new mandated reporting criteria.
3.Teach the new definitions of "abuse " and "neglect"
4. Teach how psychologist privilege and confidentiality relates to the Child Protective Services Law
5. Define the circumstances when a client may obtain a Protection from Abuse Order for themselves or their children.
