Ethical Dilemmas of School Professionals Regarding Child Abuse

There have been significant changes to the Child Protective Services Law that became effective in December 2014.  Although there are home study and in-person courses to educate licensed professionals regarding the new regulations, many questions remain.  This workshop will not meet the continuing education requirement in Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting for licensure renewal.  However, it will meet the requirement for ethics credits.

  • Linda K. Knauss, Ph.D., is a Professor and Director of Internship Training at Widener University’s Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology. She is chair of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association’s Ethics Committee, a member of the American Psychological Association’s Ethics Committee, and has served as Co-Chair of the Philadelphia Society of Clinical Psychologists’ Ethics Committee. Dr. Knauss has taught courses in ethics at Widener University, Immaculata College, and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. She has authored several book chapters and journal articles on ethics and has taught many continuing education workshops on a variety of ethical issues. Dr. Knauss was the recipient of the 2002 Ethics Educators Award presented by the Pennsylvania Psychological Association’s Ethics Committee and the recipient of the 2004 Pennsylvania Psychological Association Distinguished Service Award.
