Abstract

Child abuse raises public passion and professional concern, which demands a careful review of the evidence of its longer term psychosocial impact. The field is controversial, compounded by inadvertent 'professional iatrogenesis' involving all disciplines, including general practitioners and psychiatrists. Definitions and the prevalence of 'abuse' are explored and the psychosocial consequences of the different types of abuse, including its extremes, a murdered child, are reviewed. Evidence is presented for the need for rediscovering the central importance of the psychiatric and poverty dimensions in the child protection interface, which should lead to an integrated, evidence-based treatment/policy approach that is necessary for child protection. New evidence is offered in considering the appropriateness of a 'Megan's Law' for Britain.
