SafeCare: Addressing Child Maltreatment From a Public Health Perspective (pp. 161-172) $45.00
Authors:  Anna Edwards, John R. Lutzker, Shannon Self-Brown and Daniel Whitaker
Abstract:
This article discusses the public health burden of child maltreatment. Contextual issues surrounding child neglect, one of the most pervasive forms of child maltreatment, are presented. One public health initiative is to prevent child maltreatment through dissemination of evidence-based prevention programs into community settings. SafeCareŽ, a structured parenting program that was developed for the prevention of child maltreatment, is one of the few evidence-based programs that targets proximal behaviors that can lead to both child neglect and abuse. A brief history of SafeCare along with outcome research is provided, and implementation issues involved with the translation of SafeCare research into practice are discussed. A need exists to reach a wider audience of public health professionals and home visitors with the SafeCare model. Opportunities for addressing this need include the development of a train-the-trainer model, and use of technology to make the program more accessible and training more cost-effective for providers.
