Introductory pages define child abuse and neglect, suggest the scope of the problem, delineate reasons for its occurrence, and explain how to recognize abuse or neglect. This section also conveys information about who should report abuse or neglect, what happens when a report is made, how affected children and their families can be helped, and how the Federal government supports state and local child protection efforts. The next several pages list child protection agencies by state and cover reporting procedures. Finally, national organizations concerned with child maltreatment, as well as national child welfare resource, research, and information centers, are listed. Contains 20 references. (MSF)
