Child abuse -- Prevention;

Abstract

Incidence of child abuse in this country is staggering. The United States Children's Bureau found that at least one million children are mistreated each year. Over three thousand of these children are killed by their parents or another caretaker. Studies show the abuser is not usually a raving maniac, but a "normal" individual who is overpowered by his or her personal, emotional, and environmental problems (Whitfield, 1987). To give support and aid to this group of parents is an aim of child abuse and neglect prevention programs.
