For instance, for this student, before reading this book, I would categorize this different types of abuse differently, from more severe to less severe, and perhaps giving less importance to those I viewed as less severe. But it is important to understand that for each of these victims, each abuse was very serious, very severe, and they should be treated equally. This book is also a great source of understanding for those who were perpetrators of abuse, especially against children, it will help them to understand the consequences of their actions, and how perhaps once act, have completely changed the life of a child. This book is also important to parents and those who work with children, when we, as adults understands the risks that children, adolescents and any person who is not able to protect themselves are facing, we hopefully can be more vigilant of children, women and any possible

Psychological Trauma Before turning 18, kids in the foster care system already experience a plethora of traumatic instances. As a result, a significant mental health risk among kids in foster care is PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder.
Poverty is described as being the single greatest threat to a child because it affects the children’s lives so greatly. For example, about 28 percent of children in developing countries live in poverty. “Around 27-28 percent of all children in developing countries are estimated to be underweight or stunted” (Shah, 2013). There are 165 countries in the world, but 137 in development

It is found that from the years 2009 to 2013, a documented 63,000 children were reported as victims of sexual abuse or harassment. Statistically, it is also found that every eight minutes, Child Protective Services find evidence or claims of child sex abuse. The effects of this abuse can be long-lasting and consequently affects the mental health of a victim. It is found that victims who encounter sexual harassment are four times as likely to develop drug abusiveness, post traumatic stress disorders, and three times as likely to develop anxiety or depressive episodes (Children and Teens: Statistics). The consequences of sexual abuse are not only found to be confined to the times of incidents but develop lasting effects on the victims long after the incident occurs.
Kids have been bullied at a very young age during their life. Bullying can mold how a child is, it can change the way they live and how they express themselves. Everywhere in the country kids bully each other. In the study it showed that bullying across countries ranges from 8.6 to 45.2 percent among boys and 4.8 to 35.8 percent among girls(1). Some of the kids tell people about bullying to an adult
Children learn how to behave from their caregivers. When dysfunctional caregivers give an unhealthy verbal or nonverbal message, the message of the caregivers become part of the children’s own opinion of themselves. The behaviors of grandiosity and arrogance come from a family that teaches the children to find faults with others. If caregivers treat their children as if they do not make mistakes or all mistakes that they make are the parent’s fault, they give the child the idea that they are perfect when in all reality they are “perfectly imperfect”. Such children are sometimes scolded and shamed by their caregivers or other individuals because of their arrogance and grandiosity.

Each year in America alone, an estimate of two million children, ranging from infants to teenagers go through minor or major kinds of abuse which include neglect, physical, emotional, and sexual maltreatment. According to the National American Committee to Prevent Child Abuse, neglect represented 54% of confirmed cases of child abuse, physical abuse represented 22%, sexual abuse represented 8%, emotional maltreatment represented 4%, and other forms of maltreatment represented12%.

Data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Child Maltreatment 2013 (2015) report shows that in 2013, there were approximately 3.9 million reports of child abuse made in the United States.

As a child protective advocate, I realize that verbal abuse requires immediate intervention, and possible removal from the family as well. The Child Abuse & Neglect Manual is very thorough, and discusses parenting coping skills at length. According to DePanfilis (2006), many parents themselves do not have cognitive insight about their behavior and/or the normal developmental phases of childhood (DePanfilis, 2006, p. 47). This manual will be a great resource for practice, as it identifies many variables of emotional, verbal, and physical abuse.
