Compliance with Mandated Child Abuse Reporting: Comparing Physicians and Teachers.
Kenny, Maureen C.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v34 n1 p9-23 2001
Fifty-six recently trained physicians and teachers were compared on rates and knowledge of child abuse reporting and responses to vignettes of sexual abuse. Results demonstrated differences between the groups with physicians making significantly more reports and assisting in child abuse reporting more often than teachers. Physicians reported receiving more adequate preservice and professional training in child abuse. (Contains 28 references and 4 tables.) (GCP)
