The Relief Nursery: A Model for Intervention and Prevention (Workshop 49)
The Relief Nursery model, a nationally recognized child abuse prevention program that combines therapeutic early childhood programs, respite care, home visitation, parent education, and support, is notable for its unique emphases: both children and parents are the focus of services designed to address risk factors for child abuse and neglect. Presenters showcase the adaptation of the model in nine different urban and rural communities, highlighting the way individual Nurseries have grown to reflect the specific needs of the community and population they serve. In addition to providing information about individual nurseries, the workshop describes efforts to build a strong, statewide collaborative of Relief Nurseries.
