Child Abuse: From Research to Remediation.
Belsky, Jay
Reviewed is research on the etiology and treatment of child abuse, specifically on three basic theoretical models: A psychiatric model emphasizing the individual abuser's role; a sociological model stressing the impact of social factors; and a model which focuses on the child's role in stimulating his own maltreatment. The second part of the paper critically examines remediation strategies within each model (including self help groups, homemaker services, and changes in treatment of premature infants). The importance of considering all three models in devising treatment strategies is stressed. (CL)
