Child abuse and alcohol misuse in a victim: The role of ethnic and societal factors (pp. 351-355) $45.00
Authors:  Sergei V Jargin
The association of child abuse with alcohol misuse in adolescent victims is known. A case report from the former Soviet Union (SU) is presented in this short communication, illustrating an immediate cause-effect relationship. An opportunity to stay away from the abusive atmosphere at home was provided by a drinking company of schoolmates including some older boys inspiring alcohol purchase and consumption. Ethnicity-related and other societal factors contributing to alcohol misuse and antisocial behavior in adolescents are discussed. Violence in families was a seldom theme in the professional literature of the former SU. Public organizations sometimes did not react to known cases of family violence. A part of the society appeared to be opposed to a broad discussion of family violence because it is to some extent accepted. There is no generally agreed policy with regard to child abuse; the matter being complicated by shortage of adequately trained personnel and limited access to foreign professional literature. The situation seems to be improving nonetheless: the growing Russian economy enables further development of the social welfare system, while broadening international cooperation must attract foreign expertise into the country.
