Home Visitation at the Crossroads: Emerging Strategies to Enhance their Preventive Impact (Workshop 76)
This presentation examines the state of the science of one of the most promising and widely adopted strategies aimed at preventing physical child abuse and neglect before it occurs, namely that of early home visitation services. Recent empirical findings on home visitation services have raised important questions about the impact of early home visitation programs and pose complicated issues for practitioners considering how best to maximize the benefit of such services for families facing child maltreatment risk.
