Child Protective Services/Dr. Richard A. Gardner, a clinical professor of child psychiatry at Columbia U/& the : the false reporting epidemic
----------
In divorce cases today, many experts estimate that between 75 and 80 percent of allegations of child abuse are completely false (unfounded). Although, the Mondale Act's emphasis on bringing even suspicions of abuse into the open has saved thousands of children from harm by using government funds to set up child abuse prevention programs such as Child Protective Services or CPS and the Department of Children and Family Services or DCFS, there have been some rather disturbing and compelling side-effects.
Dr. Richard A. Gardner, a clinical professor of child psychiatry at Columbia University who has over thirty years of experience evaluating allegations of child abuse, notes that many Child Protective Service (CPS) workers refer to themselves as "validators"--a term that at best raises questions about their objectivity. "They of course hold that 'children never lie about sexual abuse,' and they accept as valid every statement a child makes that might verify sex abuse."
According to Dr. Gardner, "there's a complex network of social workers, mental health professionals, and law enforcement officials that actually encourages charges of child abuse--whether they're reasonable or not." In effect, the Mondale Act, despite its good intentions, created--and continues to fund--a virtual child abuse industry, populated by people whose livelihoods depend on bringing more and more allegations into the system. To learn more, read the article A System Out of Control: The Epidemic of False Allegations of Child Abuse.
