A. Prevention of injury (sexual assault, violence, psychological abuse) by reporting to a higher authority in cases you know – or consider it likely – this will happen. However, the duty of confidentiality hinders your ability to report.
B. Prevention of injury (sexual assault, violence, psychological abuse) by reporting people you suspect have inflicted such injuries.
C. Prevention of injury (sexual assault, violence, psychological abuse) by reporting to a higher authority in cases you know – or consider it likely – this will happen. The obligation to act applies to everyone at all times and voids a potential duty of confidentiality.
