Management of Child Abuse or Neglect Cases

 I have always been very conscious on how to broach this issue if it happens to someone I am talking to

So here I am sharing what I have learnt

Management of Child Abuse / Neglect Cases

Some examples of Don'ts


- Force the CYP to disclose

- Jump to conclusions

-Repeatedly interview the CYP

- Promise the CYP that you will keep it a secret

- Ask leading questions

- Take photos of the injury

-  Let the CYP make decisions about taking actions

- Do not call the CYP parents to check on the allegations as the person might be related to the parents and might heard and take time to cover up
