Child abuse in youth organizations rare compared with other settings

February 9, 2016

Child abuse, including verbal, physical and sexual abuse, rarely occurred in youth-serving organizations when compared with abuse committed by family members or other adults, according to recent research in JAMA Pediatrics.

“Child abuse in youth-serving organizations has received considerable attention in the wake of extensive news coverage of cases involving teachers, coaches, day care staff, clergy, and scout leaders,” Anne Shattuck, PhD, of the Crimes Against Children Research Center, University of New Hampshire, and colleagues wrote. “This analysis suggests that maltreatment of children and youth in youth-serving organizations is a problem, but not nearly as much as maltreatment in the family.”
