You Can’t Do That to a Child! Defining Child Physical Abuse and Neglect for Research and Child Protective Services

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A great deal of research has been conducted on child physical abuse and neglect (CPAN). However, operational definitions of these terms may vary, which presents difficulties for comparing findings across studies. The present study compares personal definitions of CPAN with those outlined in the Modified Maltreatment Classification System (MMCS), a measure for defining CPAN. Over 300 undergraduate students were asked to read vignettes and answer questions regarding the possible existence and severity of CPAN. Their answers were compared to MMCS guidelines to determine the degree of agreement in defining these terms. These findings will be discussed as they pertain to the implications of disagreement between researcher and child advocate agency definitions of CPAN.
