Preventing child abuse is obviously of vital importance, but it is not always an easy task. Common prevention strategies include support groups for parents, home visits by social workers, and programs that teach children about abuse. Some of these interventions do work well, but it is often very difficult to implement them due to a lack of resources. When prevention fails and children are abused, they need to be treated to help them recover as best as possible. The most common treatment for child abuse is some form of therapy to mitigate the damage caused, and help children to heal. Treatment also includes any medical treatment of injuries inflicted by the abuser, such as broken bones.
