Mandatory Reporting
shortlisted

Mandatory reporting legislation requires clinicians to report suspected abuse, even when there’s uncertainty. For Jonah, a young American psychology student trying to escape a tragic history, keeping secrets seems like the only way to save himself. 

Jennifer Wilson O’Raghallaigh is an American clinical psychologist who has been living and working in Dublin, Ireland, for many years.  She was a finalist at the Irish Writers Centre Novel Fair in 2019.  Mandatory Reporting has her experience at its core and is her first novel.
