An Evidence-Based Approach to Planning and Evaluating Interventions

Why are some children abused or neglected? What can be done to
protect and help them?



A key element of informed decision making is knowing what sort of
problems are amenable to what sort of intervention, in what
circumstances, and with what degree of certainty. Effective
Interventions for Child Abuse and Neglect provides a thorough and
detailed review of the available research, and makes suggestions as
to how this evidence can be incorporated into professional child
protection work.



Geraldine Macdonald first considers the range of evaluative tools
available, with illustrations from existing research studies and
reviews, and appraises their respective merits and limitations. She
then describes the interplay of a range of causal factors in abuse
and neglect, and considers different types of maltreatment and
their potential consequences. Evidence for effective preventative
and therapeutic measures are considered next, followed by a final
section on accurate assessment and the use of formal tools in risk
management.
