*  Prevalence and characteristics of child physical abuse in Sweden : findings from a population-based youth survey
Aim: To examine prevalence rates of child physical abuse perpetrated by a parent/caretaker, abuse characteristics and the extent of disclosures. Methods: A population-based survey was carried out in 2008 amongst all the pupils in three different grades (n = 8494) in schools in Sodermanland County, Sweden. The pupils were asked about their exposure to violence and their experiences of parental intimate-partner violence. Data were analysed with bi- and multivariate models and a comparison between means of accumulating risk factors between three groups were performed. Results: A total of 15.2% of the children reported that they had been hit. There were strong associations between abuse and risk factors and there was a dose-response relationship between risks and reported abuse. It was shown that children who reported parental intimate-partner violence were at a considerably higher risk for ...

*  Developmental impact of child neglect in early childhood - Wikipedia
Child neglect, often overlooked, is the most common form of child maltreatment. Most perpetrators of child abuse and neglect are the parents themselves. A total of 79.4% of the perpetrators of abused and neglected children are the parents of the victims, and of those 79.4% parents, 61% exclusively neglect their children. The physical, emotional, and cognitive developmental impacts from child neglect in early childhood can be detrimental as the effects from the neglect can carry on into adulthood. Research has shown that by the time a child reaches the age of six, if they have experienced adverse exposures, such as neglect, their chances of having overall poor physical health increases by two-fold. Infants can develop poor physical health if neglect starts even before the child is born. A child deprived of ...

*  American Academy of Special Education Professionals: Child Abuse Cases in Army Families May Be Under-Reported
Child abuse within U.S. Army families may be significantly under-reported, a new study suggests. Researchers found that only one-fifth of diagnosed child abuse and neglect cases among U.S. Army-dependent children from 2004 to 2007 had a substantiated report with the Army's Family Advocacy Program (FAP). The program is responsible for investigating and treating child abuse. That's less than half the rate (44 percent) of child abuse cases substantiated by civilian Child Protective Services, according to the study. The investigation was conducted by researchers at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the U.S. Army FAP. Read More. ...

Parental dissatisfaction with children appears to be associated with child maltreatment. However, little is known regarding the specific domains of parental dissatisfaction that may increase child maltreatment potential, particularly in perpetrators of child maltreatment where substance abuse is present. In this study, responses to the Child Abuse Potential Inventory (CAPI) and a scale measuring parental satisfaction in 11 domains were examined in a sample of 82 mothers who were referred for treatment of substance abuse and child neglect by the local child protective service agency. Results indicated that mothers were relatively most satisfied with their children overall, and least satisfied in domains that were relevant to discipline (i.e., following house rules, compliance, reaction to redirection and punishment, ...

*  An Economic Assessment of Parents' Self-Composure: The Case of Physical Child Abuse : Topics in Economic Analysis & Policy
This paper uses a maximum likelihood procedure that accounts for unobserved heterogeneity in the sample to implement a preference-based model to assess factors that influence parents' likelihood of losing their composure and physically abusing their children. A basic supposition of the model is that parents prefer to deal with parent-child conflict by choosing tactics and behaviors that do not exceed a specified level of violence; however, endogenous parent and child behaviors and exogenous circumstances may arouse parents' emotions that cause this level to be exceeded. Our results suggest policy interventions that influence such circumstances and associated behaviors may strongly influence the incidence of physical child abuse. We estimate the ex ante annual value parents attach to risk reductions of self-composure losses associated with excessive parent-child violence. This value is shown to be greater ...

*  Characteristics of Children Reported to Child Protective Services for Medical Neglect. - NextBio article
Medical neglect can have serious consequences. There is little evidence base to guide medical neglect management and research. Our objective was to describe a group of children reported to child protective services (CPS) for medical neglect to define this population as well as identify prevention and intervention approaches. This was a retrospective descriptive study of all patients at a pediatric hospital reported to CPS for medical neglect over a 6-year period. Data about health, health care, CPS involvement, and social history were obtained through medical record review. Of the 154 patients reported for medical neglect, 140 (91%) had chronic illness. The most common diagnoses were type 1 diabetes, organ transplantation, and prematurity-related conditions. Most patients (83%) were black or Hispanic and 90% were publically insured. More than half of patients (54%) had >1 CPS report during the study period. Almost all patients (88%) returned to the hospital for care ...

Many different clinical diagnosis overlap with the symptoms of child abuse. A keen clinical approach is necessary to ensure all children being abused are identified without over-testing or the social impact of a child abuse investigation.

Many disease processes may mimic bruising therefore the American Academy of Pediatrics has published guidelines regarding the evaluation for bleeding disorders when child abuse is suspected.

Myths and facts about child abuse and neglect. (Source: http://helpguide.org/mental/child_abuse_physical_emotional_sexual_neglect.htm). 1. Myth - It's only abuse if it's violent. Fact - Physical abuse is just one type of child abuse. Neglect and emotional abuse can be just as damaging, and since they are more subtle, others are less likely to intervene.. 2. Myth - Only bad people abuse their children. Fact - While it's easy to say that only "bad people" abuse their children, it's not always so black and white. Not all abusers are intentionally harming their children. Many have been victims of abuse themselves, and don't know any other way to parent. Others may be struggling with mental health issues or a substance abuse ...

*  Crazy Days and Nights: Will And Jada Pinkett Smith Being Investigated By Child Protective Services
According to Radar, Child Protective Services has launched an investigation after the photo of their 13 year old daughter in bed with a half naked 20 year old man surfaced on the internet. Apparently this will involve interviews with the parents and Willow and the 20 year old who caused all the uproar. The investigation will last about a month and then a report will be filed. I don't think Will and Jada are going to lose custody or have any charges filed, but I would like to know what the guy has to say about all of this and if he gets caught in some type of lie or does say there was something going on between himself and Jada. I guess this means the world is not really covert pedophiles like Jada seems to think we are. I think this is the right thing to do and I think there would have been some outrage if they didn't at least give it a look. We are talking about a 13 year old here and it wouldn't be the first time in recorded history that a mom didn't really know the full truth about what ...

*  Evaluation of Suspected Child Physical Abuse | FROM THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS | Pediatrics
The role of the pediatrician encompasses prevention of abuse and detection and medical management of victims of abuse. Accurate identification of children who are suspected victims of abuse can facilitate appropriate evaluation, referral, investigation, and outcomes for these children and their families.16 Children usually sustain abuse at the hands of a caregiver who misinterprets and responds inappropriately to the child's behavior. For example, caregivers who had smothered, shook, or slapped their infant within the first 6 months of life were more likely to be worried about crying and to believe that their infants cried excessively.17 There is a close correlation between the age-specific incidence curve of infants hospitalized with abusive head trauma and the age-specific normal crying behavior of infants up to 36 weeks of age.18. In an anonymous telephone survey of 1435 ...

The traumatic effects of child abuse and neglect can persist for decades, often with substantial economic consequences, researchers report. 'We found associations of child neglect and abuse with adult socioeconomic circumstances at age 50,' said lead author Snehal Pinto Pereira. Physical, social or emotional abuse in childhood was linked at midlife to a greater risk of time off from work due to long-term sickness, said Pereira, a research associate at University College London's Institute of Child Health. Mistreatment in childhood also lowered the odds of owning a home, she said. 'The associations for child neglect were linked to their poor reading and mathematics skills in adolescence, which in turn could hamper their ability to find work and progress in the job market,' she explained.

*  Frontiers | Adverse Childhood Experiences Are Linked to Age of Onset and Reading Recognition in Multiple Sclerosis | Neurology
AbstractBackground: Adverse childhood experiences exert a psychological and physiological toll that increases risk of chronic conditions, poorer social functioning, and cognitive impairment in adulthood. Objective: To investigate the relationship between childhood adversity and clinical disease features in multiple sclerosis (MS).Methods: Sixty-seven participants with MS completed the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) assessment and neuropsychological assessments as part of a larger clinical trial of cognitive remediation. Results: ACE scores, a measure of exposure to adverse events in childhood, significantly predicted age of MS onset (r= 0.30, p=0.04). ACE's were also linked to reading recognition (a proxy for premorbid IQ); (r= 0.25, p=0.04). ACE scores were not related to age, current disability, or current level of cognitive impairment measured by the Symbol Digit Modalities Test (SDMT).Conclusion: Childhood ...
