Title: Improving Child Welfare Outcomes: From Risk Factor Research to Prevention

In this seminar Professor John Eckenrode will explore two lines of his research.  Both involve a particular focus on child welfare outcomes, as defined by the incidence of officially substantiated cases of child maltreatment, as well as foster care placements. First, he will describe, using national U.S. data, disparities in child maltreatment and foster care rates within counties as a function income inequality.  Second, he will relate findings from the U.S. clinical trials of the Nurse Family Partnership program with regard to long-term effects on reducing child maltreatment. Together, this work spans the translational research continuum from risk factor research, to testing the efficacy of prevention programs, and then wide-scale dissemination.

The slides are now available from this event.
