Emerging Practices in the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect

In fiscal year (FY) 2001, the Children’s Bureau initiated the Emerging Practices in the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect project to gather and then share information on programs and initiatives around the country for the prevention of child maltreatment. This report begins with an overview of maltreatment, which briefly describes existing national prevention models, followed by the results of the nomination process for effective and innovative child maltreatment prevention programs. The report conclusion discusses the limits of existing knowledge about the effectiveness of prevention, the need to expand efforts to understand the performance and impact of prevention programs, and observations and recommendations for next steps.
