This study was designed to determine the relationship between attitudes of child protective social workers in their identifying children at risk, and their assessment of father-daughter incest. Fifty-seven caseworkers participated in the study. The findings indicated that: 1) there is no significant difference in mean based on different levels of education in assessment of children at risk; 2) there was no significant difference between the black and white caseworkers in their identifying children at risk in father-daughter incest; and 3) there was no difference in workers living in rural areas as oppose to workers living in urban areas in their perception of children at risk.
