“Each year, child protective services receive reports of child abuse and neglect involving six million children, and many more go unreported. The long-term human and fiscal consequences of child abuse and neglect are not relegated to the victims themselves — they also impact their families, future relationships, and society. In 1993, the National Research Council (NRC) issued the report, Under-standing Child Abuse and Neglect, which provided an overview of the research on child abuse and neglect. New Directions in Child Abuse and Neglect Research updates the 1993 report and provides new recommendations to respond to this public health challenge. According to this report, while there has been great progress in child abuse and neglect research, a coordinated, national research infrastructure with high-level federal support needs to be established and implemented immediately.

New Directions in Child Abuse and Neglect Research recommends an actionable framework to guide and support future child abuse and neglect research. This report calls for a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to child abuse and neglect research that examines factors related to both children and adults across physical, mental, and behavioral health domains–including those in child welfare, economic support, criminal justice, education, and health care systems–and assesses the needs of a variety of subpopulations. It should also clarify the causal pathways related to child abuse and neglect and, more importantly, assess efforts to interrupt these pathways. New Directions in Child Abuse and Neglect Research identifies four areas to look to in developing a coordinated research enterprise: a national strategic plan, a national surveillance system, a new generation of researchers, and changes in the federal and state programmatic and policy response.”

Adults Surviving Child Abuse (ASCA) Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery

“ASCA’s Practice Guidelines for Treatment of Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care and Service Delivery present the collective wisdom of the last two decades of national and international research in the trauma field. They are poised to revolutionise possibilities for recovery for the large numbers of people with unresolved “complex trauma” – child abuse in all its forms, neglect, family and community violence and other adverse childhood events.”

National action plan to tackle child abuse linked to faith or belief [UK] – August 2012

National action plan to tackle child abuse linked to faith or belief [UK] – August 2012

This action plan was created to help raise awareness of the issue of child abuse linked to faith or belief and to encourage people to take practical steps to prevent such abuse. It has been developed in partnership with members of the National Working Group including central government and local statutory partners, faith leaders, voluntary sector organisations and the Metropolitan Police.

The action plan sets out actions which are being led by the Working Group members, both at a local and national level. It looks at tackling abuse linked to faith or belief from the perspective of the child, parent, community and faith group members and child practitioners. It is organised into four themes: engaging communities; empowering practitioners; supporting victims and witnesses; and communicating key messages.”

Child Maltreatment Research, Policy, and Practice for the Next Decade – Workshop Summary – Institute of Medicine – 5 April 2012

Full text

“In 1993, the National Research Council (NRC) released Understanding Child Abuse and Neglect, which highlighted child maltreatment as a devastating social problem in America. The report noted that abuse and neglect were the cause of thousands of child deaths each year, and research in the field of child maltreatment was relatively undeveloped. The services required for children who had been abused or neglected cost millions of dollars annually. To reduce the physical and emotional tolls of child maltreatment, the report called for a wide-ranging research program.

Nearly 20 years later, child maltreatment research has greatly expanded, however, many critical gaps in knowledge remain. On January 30-31, 2012, the IOM and NRC’s Board on Children, Youth, and Families held a workshop to review the accomplishments of the past two decades of research related to child maltreatment, identify remaining gaps, and consider potential research priorities. This document summarizes the workshop.”
