How to Identify Child Abuse

There are four categories of abuse as defined by the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA).

The four categories of child abuse are:

  • Physical abuse: This occurs if injuries like bruises, broken bones, burns, or cuts are caused by aggressive act. Abusers may strike, beat, shake, or throw a child to produce these injuries.
  • Sexual abuse: Sexual abuses arise when an adult uses a child for his or her own sexual gratification. The adult may have the child engage in sexual acts like intercourse, pornography, or prostitution.
  • Emotional abuse: Any behavior that has a negative impact on a child's emotions or feelings may be classified as emotional abuse. Denying affection, withholding support, making threats, or unreasonably criticizing a child may all fall under the realm of emotional abuse.
  • Neglect: Neglect is a failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker. An adult that fails to provide for a child's physical or emotional needs may be accused of child abuse.

Once you notice any of these signs, it is essential that you act now and call the authorities and an attorney. We will work quickly to make sure that your child is out of an abuser’s environment and in a safe place.
