I am a BCBA and therefore, a mandated reporter. After a report I made recently (details protected to maintain confidentiality), the guardian is retaliating (harassment, threats, etc.). Is there any protection in the state of AZ against retaliatory actions towards a mandated reporter? I do not feel personally intimidated specific to making/not making future reports; however, it is clear that such actions towards a mandated reporter may have a punishing effect on new(er) professionals with less confidence or support. Any suggestions from the ethics committee on how this should be handled? Any resources available?


  • First step would be severing the relationship if the BCBA is still providing services


  • Potentially contact attorneys or professional liability


  • Review mandated reporter requirements with teams frequently


  • Possibly using the report as a teaching moment for the team/family and being transparent at times with certain reportable situations to work as a team with the family
