This paper looks at how differential attitudes towards different social groups - African-Americans, those with minority religious views - leads to differential treatment (and thereby outcomes) for the families of abused children. The paper provides scholarly material supporting the above contention and also looks at what the social work profession can do to discourage such sentiments while simultaneously making itself more responsive to victims. As part of its investigation of this important issue, the paper also looks at Piagetian developmental theory and how the accomodationist processes which are pivotal to the cognitive development of children are profoundly affected by violence in the home going unchecked - in part because of social workers being lax in the discharge of their duties.
