The over-reporting of physical and sexual abuse of children

Should current reporting laws regarding physical and sexual abuse of children be sharply limited to discourage over-reporting? Cite theoretical and empirical evidence both for and against this view. • Evidence of theoretical/empirical content relevant to the question • Synthesis of a range of viewpoints • Application to practice • Critical evaluation of the material and practice issues • Ability to communicate ideas clearly It should be discussed in an Australian context. Thanks.
