Suspicion de maltraitance de l’enfant : étude rétrospective examinant les facteurs associés à la prise de décision entre information préoccupante et signalement judiciaire

Abstract : The French child protection system provides two types of protection when a child is suspected of being the victim of abuse and neglect. The decision to report it to the administrative or to the judicial system depends on severity criteria, which are not defined by the legislator. The goal of our study was to examine the factors associated with the decision to report abuse to the judicial authority rather than to the administrative authority in a French pediatric hospital. The results show that cases where children were suspected of being physically mistreated, or if the parental behavior was perceived as inappropriate or opposing, or if the child was brought at the hospital by a person who was not a parent were more often reported to the judicial authority. A lot of data were missing, in particular concerning the presence or not of domestic violence, psychiatric disorders, a history of violence during childhood, or parental psychoactive substance abuse. It is necessary to improve the assessment of the child and his family and to gain a better knowledge of the factors that could help in this decision.
