Prevalence Statistics and Reporting Requirements

  • Browse state-run Web sites to collect information about statistical estimates on family violence that is reported or that goes unreported.
  • Choose a specific area of family violence and hypothesize why there is such a variance between actual reported and unreported incidents.
  • Browse the Web to determine the state-mandated reporting requirements if treatment professionals learn about children in danger due to family violence in the home environment.You may choose to address your home state or any other state within the U.S. (the state I live in is North Carolina, although my HOME state is Pennsylvania. For the purpose of this assignment, you can use North Carolina if you want, but it’s not necessary.)
  • Analyze the reporting requirements to verify if they are too lenient or too strict.
  • How might reporting rates be increased?

Write to each part in 3–4 paragraphs. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

Prevalence Statistics and Reporting Requirements

o Browse state-run Web sites to collect information about statistical estimates on family violence that is reported or that goes unreported. Between 1998 and 2002, family violence accounted for around 11% of unreported and reported violence. Out of these around 3.5 million violent crimes were committed against members of family, 49% were crimes committed against spouses and 11% of cases were against sons or daughters by parents. Apart from these, 41% of crimes were committed against other family members (Dorose et al., 2005).

In Pennsylvania, domestic violence and sexual assault cases have been on a rise. Between June 2006 and July 2007, 91,545 victims of domestic violence and sexual assault received services from the 62 locally run programs in pennsylvania. In 2006, 64 women and five children were killed because of domestic violence. In 2005, around 39,371 cases of protection from abuse order were filed in Pennsylvania. In 2006, 3,434 rape cases were reported (Domestic Violence Facts: Pennsylvania, n.d.).

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), cases of domestic violence usually go under the category of unreported crimes. Out of all the domestic violence cases, only 50% of stalking cases, 25% of physical assault cases and 20% of all rape cases are reported to the police. A few cases are reported if the violence has been repeated multiple times (Domestic Violence Statistics: 70% of Cases Go Unreported, 2012).

o Choose a specific area of family violence and hypothesize why there is such a variance between actual reported and unreported incidents. The area of violence that usually go unreported is domestic violence against women. Wives usually have a tendency to keep quiet and bear offences. They do not want to go against men out of emotional attachment. They easily forgive and are ready to adjust. They may report about the violence if they are beaten up regularly many times. A few of the cases have been reported when the women were beaten repeatedly many times. May be ultimately the women involved in such kind of violence realize that there is no chance of change in their boyfriends or spouse and therefore report the cases. Sometimes if they are not able to hide their injuries, the neighbors or close friends report the cases. Women also have a shy attitude, may be all women are not shy, but some do not like to get exposed unnecessarily and so avoid reporting cases of violence or rape. If young girls are abused, the family members do not want the child to suffer a psychological trauma by facing public therefore they avoid reporting cases. Some women are dependent on their husbands financially and emotionally and therefore do not want to raise a head against them by reporting violence. Sometimes domestic violence cases go unreported because of fear of future attacks. This kind of domestic violence is seen mostly in relation to stalkers and when the women being stalked realize that they have to report the case, it is usually too late.
