Application of Research on Child Abuse and Neglect: Recidivism to Prevention (Workshop 151)
Lowered rates of child abuse and neglect recidivism have commonly been used as measures of success or failure in programs. However, analysis of re-entry into the CPS system may inform practice in other ways. This presentation will ask what recidivism tells us about the needs of families for specific assistance and ongoing support. The workshop is based on analyses of long-term sequences of reports on several thousand families in Missouri with a particular focus on the St. Louis area.
