Introduction The purpose of this paper is to self-reflect on my own worldview, values and beliefs and how those may challenge or facilitate my professional work. My value that pedophiles are immoral has been passed down from my family. It helps define my behavior in various contexts because it provides me with a personal code of conduct of which to live by. My value and my belief that those who are attracted to children are sick individuals and are immoral may create an ethical dilemma when working with pedophiles because of my preconceived notions.
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines child abuse as "all forms of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment, sexual abuse, neglect or negligent treatment or commercial or other exploitation, resulting in actual or potential harm to the child's health, survival, development or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility, trust or power."

Research has linked certain characteristics of the child, as well as features of the family environment, to child abuse and neglect. Main forms of child abuse include physical, emotional and sexual harassment, and neglect (Berrayed, 2001; Aberle et al., 2007). Unfit parents negatively affect the child’s emotional development, which leads to behavioral problems.

After learning the summary of every child’s rights under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, I am more concerned about mental health resources for children, especially for children who experience traumas. According to United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (Unicef, 1989), “Children who have been neglected, abused or exploited should receive special help to physically and psychologically recover and reintegrate into society”. Children who experience traumatic events have right to receive rehabilitation services from communities, school, health care facilities. I believe rehabilitations are same as important as preventions in child welfare programs. However, child welfare in the United States still is under consideration

CAPTA provides state guidelines to determine child abuse and neglect, based on a set of behaviors. For example, a child can be neglected and/or maltreated still in the mother’s womb because the child was “prenatally exposed to illegal substances” (Price, Bergin, et al, 2012).
