Product Description

The contributors are leading authorities who illuminate how contextual factors—including poverty, chaotic neighborhoods, and lack of social supports—combine with family factors to place children at risk for maltreatment. They present a range of exemplary programs designed to strengthen communities while also helping individual parents to meet their children’s needs. Real-world evaluation approaches, quality-control strategies, and policy implications are discussed in depth.
