Topic: Interventions for Neglect
Why was Interventions for Neglect chosen as a topic by the Advisory Committee? (Click for Answer)
Interventions for Neglect was chosen as a topic by the Advisory Committee because, while child neglect is the most common type of child maltreatment, it frequently goes unreported and, historically, has not been acknowledged or publicized as greatly as child abuse. In addition, the effects of neglect can be just as detrimental, and as it relates to children’s early brain development, even more detrimental than physical or sexual abuse. Child welfare professionals need help identifying new and effective ways to target and serve at-risk families so that they can minimize the risk that could lead to child neglect; equip families with the skills and resources they need to ensure that children’s basic needs are met; and decrease the effects of neglect on the developing child.
Information on successful interventions, and how these interventions can be replicated in other jurisdictions, will provide important new tools for combating the serious problem of child neglect in this country.
