Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Labor and Public Welfare.
A record of the Senate hearings on The Child Abuse Prevention Act of 1973 is presented. A copy of Senator Mondale's bill to establish a national center on child abuse is included. The objectives of the hearings were to investigate the magnitude of the child abuse problem in the United States and to clarify a definition of the problem. Different types of child abuse cases, causes of mistreatment of children, and possible solutions (preventive and remedial) were studied. Witnesses before a Senate subcommittee included college professors, doctors, social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, legislators, nurses, judges, attorneys, and members of parent organizations who have dealt with adults and children involved in cases of child abuse and neglect. A complete transcript of the hearings and related materials are followed by three appendixes which deal with medical and legal literature, child abuse programs, and press reports. (DP)
