For this week you'll read two articles. The first is titled "Lewis
Case" (read this first), the second is titled "Chornice Lewis
Sentence"(read this second, you can find it in the files section
as Canvas would not let me attach to files to this post).
I have to warn you that the readings contain details of terrible
physical abuse.
I read the first article in the Tacoma News Tribune in 2007
when it was originally printed. I remember exactly where I was
when I read that article. I was a BRAND NEW social worker
(like really, really new, like was in training but hadn't been
assigned cases yet). I was so scared that I would miss
something and that a child could be harmed to this extent. I
was frustrated with the system that I'd only been working at for
a few weeks. I was terrified that someone would do this to a
child. Five years later I saw two children whose abuser had
gone to similar lengths to torture them.
Recently I read another article (Child Torture as a Form of
Child Abuse by Barbara L. Knox, Suzanne P. Starling, Kenneth
W. Feldman**, Nancy D. Kellogg, Lori D. Frasier & Suzanna
(**Dr. Feldman is a well known child abuse specialist at Seattle
Children's Hospital) that described over 25 cases of child abuse
that the authors felt reached the definition of child torture. "
The children in this case series suffered a severe combined type
of child abuse including extreme physical and psychological
maltreatment
). Torture goes beyond simple
polyvictimization in that it includes an increased severity
ofboth physical and psychological maltreatment. It involves
intense humiliation and terrorization (Finkelhor et al.
2011
). What surprised me was that in each case there was a
FEMALE caregiver present in the home who was either part of
the torture of the child or stood by while it happened. This
SHOCKED me to no end.
Tell me what you think about my bias? How does this relate to
the Chornice Lewis case? Do you think bias played a role in the
failure to detect what was going on in her home or were their
other issues at play? What other thoughts or questions do you
have about the Chornice Lewis case?
