Abstract

Following a review of the literature a checklist of 118 items which have been associated with child abuse and neglect was constructed. This checklist was applied to twenty-five families attending a Local Authority's family centres. Nine of these families had children whose names were on the local Child Abuse Register. The checklist scores of the families on the register were compared with the remainder. There was little difference in the factors studied between the two groups. This suggests that either there is little real difference between the characteristics of abusing and non-abusing families, or that the process of registration is controlled by a series of events which are not solely related to the characteristics of the families under consideration.
