There is a widespread problem of parental child abuse and too little attention given to the problem to correct it . There is also a problem with the authorities in that there seems to be a thin line in determining what is child abuse and what is not.
The purpose of this study is to take a look at the diagnoses and treatment of the abused and the abuser as administered by local and county agencies, as well as nationwide. Also to see what improvements, if any, can be made.
This study will be limited to cases in the Dallas area and will not include a high number of cases due to the personal nature involved. The study will also be limited in that some agencies will only provide general information. Therefore, a great majority of the material presented will come from related literature.
