It can also inform law enforcement and educational professionals about the nature and causes of animal abuse in children.
The theoretical sections are helpful for graduate students or new professionals who are not familiar with children exhibiting these behaviors.

Children exposed to domestic violence were three times more likely to be cruel to animals Currie, One-third of battered women reported that their children had hurt or killed animals Ascione, New evidence also shows a strong correlation between bestiality sexual abuse of animals and child abuse.
According to the report Bestiality Laws in Preventing, Prosecuting Sex Crimes for Bloomberg BNA, there is a push toward enforcement of bestiality laws at the state level because of growing evidence of this link. Child abuse consists not only of threatening to hurt a pet, but making children witness animal abuse including dogfighting. Exposure to violence has long-term effects on emotional health. Professionals who work with children have an opportunity to intervene because children tend to speak easily about their pets, not having been coached about what to say.
The Link to Domestic Violence Domestic abusers take advantage of the vulnerability of pets and the family attachment to them to exert control.

Multiple studies have found that the percentage of battered women who stay in abusive situations because of their pets ranged from one-fifth to nearly half. Most shelters do not accept pets, and families may be terrified of leaving a pet behind.
