This chapter presents an ethical framework related to child maltreatment and applies it to clinical issues involving the thresholds of mandatory reporting, family as decision makers, end-of-life decision making, visitation and placement, funding priorities, research, and the two emerging controversial issues of reporting pregnant women whose substance use behaviors put their infants at risk and obesity as medical neglect. 33 references.
