How is child and spouse abuse and neglect handled in the Navy?

There could be dozens of reasons why a child or a spouse may be abused or neglected and this requires a careful look at the patient’s history and a physical examination by a medical provider to rule out any potential psychological and physical injuries.

This is where the policies and guidelines established by the Navy family Advocacy Program must be followed.
