Narrative Matters: Reporting Child Abuse

July 26th, 2011

In the newest Health Affairs Narrative Matters essay, a seventeen-year-old West African immigrant who’s off to college says her facial bruising was inflicted by her father, and a young pediatrician learns about — and rethinks — the process of reporting child abuse and working with Child Protective Services. The essay, “Oh, My Father Hit Me,” by Ilana Sherer, appears in the July issue of Health Affairs. You can also listen to a podcast of the essay on iTunes.

Narrative Matters is supported by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
