Description

In the United States, one of the most educated and affluent countries in the world, in 2008, over threequarters of a million children were victims of child maltreatment (USDHHS-ACF, 2010). The good news is that child abuse investigations are up and the rate of victimization is down nationally. During the time frame 2004 to 2008, the rate of all children in the US who received a disposition increased from 48.2 per 1,000 children in 2004 to 49.4 per 1,000 children in 2008. The rate of victimization decreased from 12.0 per 1,000 children in 2004 to 10.3 per 1,000 children in 2008 USDHHS-ACF, 2010). In calendar year 2009, the Department of Human Services in the state of Iowa accepted 25,814 reports for assessment. After completing the assessment of the allegations, DHS confirmed that abuse occurred in 8,867 (34%) of the assessed reports. There were 12,442 child victims named in the confirmed and founded reports. Some children suffered multiple types of abuse or repeat maltreatment. These results represent a rate of 15.6 per 1,000 Iowa children abused for 2009 (IDHS, 2010). The suffering of children continues despite laws identifying mandatory reporters. In Iowa, all mandatory reporters are required by law to complete two hours of training during their first six months of employment and two hours every five years thereafter.. The Iowa Department of Public Health, Abuse Education Review Panel has approved this course to meet that requirement.
