The Role of Fathers in Physical Child Maltreatment Prevention: Initial Findings from the Fragile Families Study (Workshop 53)
Although fathers and male figures are increasingly recognized as playing an important role in the risk for physical child abuse and neglect, the specific ways in which they serve to heighten and/or reduce risk for future maltreatment are not yet well understood. In order to clarify our understanding of the role of fathers in the risk for maltreatment, this workshop will present original findings from the first wave of data from the National Institute of Health-funded Fragile Families study, which examines child neglect and abuse risk outcomes.
