“Today, more than 27,000 younglings are reported to have been abused” (“Eleven Facts About Child Abuse”,2016). Hurting the juvenile in the Victorian Era involved adolescents being neglected as harmed in emotional and physical ways.

”(www.hrw.org) Consequently, when evaluating the evidence that is present it is safe to say, that despite all of the efforts that are put forth every day to protect our youth, some people still have the potential to prey on those whom cannot defend themselves. The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 has afforded the public with ammunition to fire back at those who prey on the vulnerable. Therefore, the foundation has been laid, for the public to build upon and grow with the knowledge that we are able to obtain to keep our children safe. Furthermore, we cannot solely rely on law enforcement, and others to keep our children safe we have to be proactive within the
1. Introduction According to the National Centre for Child Abuse and Neglect, more than four million children in the United States are abused or mistreated every year (Rappaport 12). Over half a million children suffer serious injuries, and about 1,500 children die, making child maltreatment the leading cause of deaths from injuries in children over a year old (Institute of Medicine, 1999). Undoubtedly, this number of reported cases represents only a small portion of the total number of children who are being abused.
Studies show that at 700,000 children are abused every year! The definition of child abuse, according to Childhelp.org is, "When a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failure to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk of serious harm to a child." This affects children by taking away their childhood and making them grow up before their time. Child abuse is present in the book The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton when Ponyboy tells the reader about Johnny, and how his parents abuse him. There are also fragments of Johnny talking about being abused.
() All of those children have to be reminded daily that the foster care system has a lot of problems in it. Most of these children are put in some of the most unbearable situations. The foster system has numerous problems that I think can and should be solved. This includes: children not having an education, foster parents and children not having a connection, children facing both sexual and physical abuse, financial problems, and children aging out of the system. There are many more problems with the foster care system but I think that these are the main problems that should be addressed and solved.
In fact, Ryan et al observed in about 18 months of the initial arrest, nearly 61 percent experience a subsequent arrest. A majority, at least 67 percent of the subsequent offenses transpired before the youth turned 18 years of age. In response to the increasing juvenile cases involving children who commit violent offenses, there are a number of theories that have been advanced to attempt and explain delinquent offenses however; the major theory that best explains juvenile delinquency is the Social Disorganization
Social work can be described as work that is carried out by qualified personnel to help improve the situation those suffering from social depravation. Social has many different types of fields of practice such as social workers involved in substance abuse, medical/public health, child welfare, mental health and working with aboriginals. Children are one of the most vulnerable groups in our society, being subjected to abuse such as psychological abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect and trauma. In fact, in a study conducted from 2013-2014 in Australia alone the researchers found that 198,966 children were suspected of being harmed or at risk of neglect and abuse (child family community Australia, 2015). Due to these factors Child welfare and
Domestic violence has become more seriously and international problem nowadays. Domestic violence is intentional intimidation, physical assault, sexual assault, threats, force and psychological abuse (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2015). Indeed, wife assault has accounted for the largest part in domestic violence. In Australia, there was 85% of women experience assaults in 2012 (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2015). In US, a one-third of women and a quarter of men have been abused by intimate partner (NCADV 2015).
Children and adolescents in foster care represent a highly traumatized population and are at an elevated risk of developing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). These youths experience a wide range of trauma ranging from familial separation, physical/emotional/sexual abuse, neglect, bereavement, and domestic/community violence. As of September 30, 2014, there were approximately 415,129 children placed in foster care (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2015). The number of children entering the foster care system has dramatically increased in recent decades, and research suggests the surge is due to the rising number of neglect cases associated with parental drug/alcohol abuse, poverty, homelessness, AIDS, and domestic violence
According to the article Child Abuse, Social Support, and Social Functioning in African American Children, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2006 reported “child abuse is a critical public health issue with more than 900,000 children exposed to abuse or neglect (including physical abuse) each year” (Lamis). Many of these cases have occurred within African American families. Much like incest abuse, physical abuse occurs in Henrietta Lack’s family. Galen, Deborah resisted his advances, “...grabbed Deborah by the arm, threw her in the car, and punched her hard in the face” (Skloot 115). This particular incident, among many others, indicates that incest and physical abuse frequently occur together or as a cause and or effect of one another.
