Review:

Research and Practices in Child Maltreatment Prevention is an in-depth and conceptually rich 2-volume set that reviews the history, present, and potential future of child maltreatment prevention. Prevention should be a top priority for every professional, agency, and institution addressing child maltreatment. Without the unified vision and effort of everyone involved in mitigating the terrible toll of child maltreatment, we risk the perception, and perhaps even the reality, of becoming a child abuse industry, merely processing victims and perpetrators rather than effecting the revolutionary social movement to ensure a better future for children, families, and societies that I, and most of my colleagues, envision. With more than 80 contributors representing business, child advocacy, counseling, economics, education, government, law, medicine, psychology, public health, social science, and social work, these 2 volumes are the most current and comprehensive resource addressing child maltreatment prevention. Every private and public agency, educational department, hospital, library, and most professionals involved in the child maltreatment field should have ready access to this information, whether it be on their bookshelves or online. Thanks to Randy Alexander for leading this effort and to all the contributors for their dedication to a brighter tomorrow. David L. Corwin, MD Professor and Director of Forensic Services Pediatrics Department University of Utah School of Medicine Board Chair Academy on Violence and Abuse Vice-President American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children Salt Lake City, Utah Research and Practices in Child Maltreatment Prevention, Volume 1: Definitions of Abuse and Prevention will fill a void in the library of any professional concerned with child welfare. The authors offer a dynamic perspective on the issue, taking into account changes in culture, public policy, the economy, technology, and other issues affecting children and families. So doing, they define the impact these changes can have on parenting, child safety, and service delivery systems. The multidisciplinary nature of child welfare professions is evident in the credentials of the contributing authors and the various conceptual frameworks utilized in defining and analyzing information about various types of maltreatment. Practitioners from any allied profession will find practical resources in this volume. From syntheses of critical research on preventing different types of child maltreatment to calls to action to researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, this volume has the potential to define the agenda and elevate education and practice in maltreatment prevention.

Child abuse and neglect are preventable public health issues. Research and Practices in Child Maltreatment Prevention, Volume 1: Definitions of Abuse and Prevention outlines the remarkable progress that has been made over the last several decades in understanding how to prevent child abuse and neglect. Leading researchers in the field provide information on the different types of abuse and neglect, prevention programs and their effectiveness, and other nonprogrammatic approaches to child abuse and neglect prevention.

In particular, Chapter 14, Nonprogrammatic approaches to Child Maltreatment Prevention highlights a deliberate shift toward enhancing protective factors at all levels of the social ecology, including the community and societal levels, with a specific focus on changing norms, changing the narrative of the critical importance of early childhood, and assuring the conditions that support safety, security, and nurturance. This chapter reinforces the idea that a broad public health impact on child abuse and neglect prevention will likely require a comprehensive focus that includes attention to social norms, policy, and systems approaches, in addition to individual- and relationship-focused programs.

This text is an important resource for all child abuse and neglect prevention professionals. It will be an excellent resource for those new to prevention and for the seasoned professional who needs an update on the latest research across the different varieties of abuse and neglect. --Beverly L. Fortson, PhD
Behavioral Scientist

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention


As the first major textbook dedicated exclusively to research on the prevention of child maltreatment, Research and Practices in Child Maltreatment Prevention, Volume 1, provides a multidimensional, state-of-the-art perspective from leading experts in the field. This book is highly relevant to professionals from a broad array of disciplines who are committed to preventing various forms of child maltreatment. Chapters cover such critical areas as social determinants of child maltreatment, the role of the CDC in child maltreatment prevention, research designs in prevention, and expanding definitions of evidence in child maltreatment prevention. A particularly interesting chapter addresses nonprogrammatic approaches to child maltreatment prevention. It includes a comprehensive discussion of prevention interventions that go beyond the customary one-to-one approaches (eg, home visitation, parenting classes) and provides examples of creative macro-level prevention approaches.

This book is highly recommended for all professionals who work with children and for policymakers concerned with child welfare. Readers will find this book an invaluable resource that expands visions and perspectives on child maltreatment prevention. --Susan J. Kelley, RN, PhD, FAAN
