This study focuses on the departments of Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Nursing, and Education at Valparaiso University to explore the preparedness of graduate students as future mandated reporters. The goal is to ascertain how graduate students in career fields responsible for working directly with children learn about and experience the topics of child maltreatment and mandated reporting in their graduate training programs. The overall purpose is to understand and inform graduate students and programs of the current state of training, including identifying critical gaps and potential action steps, used to prepare school psychologists, counselors, nurses, and educators for their future roles as mandated reporters.
