Physical Abuse of the School-Age Child (Workshop 126)
Over a five-year period, 409 school-age children were seen at one child abuse assessment center and diagnosed as victims of child physical abuse. This session assesses the extensive data collected on these cases, reviews the factors contributing to the manner in which the cases moved through both the child protection and legal systems, and outlines the factors affecting the way district attorneys approach physical abuse cases of school-age children. Participants gain an opportunity to better understand the dynamics of who these children and their offenders are, the circumstances leading to the abuse, as well as to become more familiar with current existing literature regarding physical abuse during punishment and the way child protection assesses these unique cases.
