Week 5 Discussion Prompt: This week you will be challenged to put the knowledge

Week 5 Discussion
Prompt:
This week you will be challenged to put the knowledge you’ve acquired through the readings about mandated reporting to practice. For this assignment, you will search the internet for a video /documentary/movie of an abuse case. You will have the creative freedom to choose a video that depicts any type of abuse that therapists/counselors are mandated to report (remember that not all abuse is reportable). After you find this video, you will follow the steps outlined below to complete your main post.
Steps
Write a brief overview of the video you watched.
Imagine you are the therapist assigned to this case and that the client has come to session and told you the story you saw in the video of the abuse.
Describe what triggered your obligation to report the abuse.
Outline the steps you see yourself taking to assess for abuse, report it, manage the situation with your client(s), provide resources, safety planning, etc.
Fill out the appropriate report template you would use to make the report (CPS/APS) specific to the state you hope to become licensed in and attach it to your main post so others can see it. You will not be able to save the pdf, but you can take a screenshot or “snip” of the report. Please make sure that after you write the name of the victim, you write FICTIONAL REPORT. Do not add real phone numbers and addresses. In these spaces you can simply put an “X”. 
Write a reflection of how you experienced this process and what you found to be the most challenging aspects of it as well as insight you gained about personal biases, triggers, assumptions, etc.
Paste the link of your video for reference.
