Abstract

The current trend in the prevention of child abuse and neglect is to incorporate it within a broad range of early intervention strategies as part of a coordinated agency network to address family dysfunction. This paper describes a number of programs that have been shown to work. They range from parenting and anger management programs to multifaceted in-house services.

This paper complements Trends and Issues no. 146 Child abuse and neglect: part 1 ­ redefining the issues which was published in February 2000.
