Maltrato infantil: situación actual y respuestas sociales

Jorge Fernández del Valle, Amaia Bravo Arteaga

Universidad de Oviedo

En este artículo se pretende revisar muy sucintamente la situación actual del maltrato infantil en términos de las tasas que algunos autores han podido cotejar, con sus variantes y tipologías, así como las respuestas sociales con las que contamos en los servicios sociales de nuestro país. No obstante, cabe decir que desde que las comunidades autónomas han asumido la competencia en estas materias, la posibilidad de contar con estadísticas nacionales fiables es muy pequeña. Se compararán algunas cifras de tasas y tipologías de maltrato y se presentarán algunas elaboraciones sobre datos estadísticos referentes a medidas de protección a la infancia, tales como intervención familiar, acogimiento familiar y acogimiento residencial.

Child abuse: Current status and social responses. In this paper, a national overview about child abuse figures and profiles will be presented. Although it is very difficult collecting data from a national perspective due to the regional governments responsibility in child protection, some figures collected by relevant researches will be analysed as well. This article also presents the current situation of different social responses to child abuse, including family intervention, family foster care and residential child care. Some statistics will be also analysed from researchers and government departments.
