This study aims to examine the approaches and solutions proposed by various regulatory systems about child abuse and mistreatment. The focus is on the legal systems of the United States of America and Argentina, which have taken different stances on the Convention on the rights of the child. Two legal cases, one from California State and another from La Pampa Province, are used as examples. The analysis of these specific cases was carried out through the comparison of the legislation applied in the matter by both countries, taking into account the consequences suffered by the children and the legal protection that professionals or public officials have in the intervention of these cases, in order to understand what are the legal gaps and/or adaptation of procedures necessary for effective child protection. Additionally, the paper suggests a comprehensive therapeutic approach to trauma that considers the difficulties and complexities of these cases, including the needs of vulnerable populations and the limitations of the healthcare system, to find a more holistic and effective solution to child abuse and mistreatment.
