Child abuse horrors
Monday, November 5 2007
THE EDITOR: I am stiff horrified and frustrated from my visit to Trinidad last weekend, when I was the keynote speaker at a conference “Abuse Uncovered”. When I was asked to speak on the topic of child abuse little did I know of the impact of this social problem on the country.
The current reporting system is a disaster and trying to obtain statistics on child abuse in the country was horrific – to say the least. There is no reliable reporting system and each organisation keeps individual statistics. There is no central reporting system and most cases go unreported. Has anyone stopped for a moment to consider the long-term psychological effects of child abuse on our children who are often times forced to remain in the same home with the abuser?
