AbstractThis study used a questionnaire to explore the similarities and differences in professional attitudes towards intervention in incest cases. Demographic data were collected from a sample consisting of 35 men and women employed at one of the following: a counseling agency, child protective services, the sheriff's department, and the police department in a Southwest community. Results showed significant differences in mean ranks, and several conclusions were drawn from the data analysis: counselors and child protective service workers' attitudes are similar, with agreement for mental health therapy. Sheriff and police detectives' attitudes are similar, with agreement for incarceration of the father.
