This practical manual presents detailed, step-by-step instructions for assessing and teaching key parenting skills proven to reduce or prevent child maltreatment. It is based on 20 years of research and practice with over 1500 families at risk for child physical abuse or neglect. The book shows how to help parents improve interactions with children, create safer home environments, and respond effectively to child health care needs. It is filled with concrete examples and helpful tips for service providers, and features more than 30 assessment forms, checklists, and other client materials, many of which may be photocopied. Also included is detailed information on staff training, complete with reproducible training materials. Designed for optimal ease of use with a convenient 8 ½ x 11 format, this is an indispensable resource for providers of voluntary or court-mandated services, including therapists, counselors, child protection workers, agency administrators, and other social work and human service professionals, as well as students in these fields.
