Title: Parenting Interventions and the Child Welfare System: Dissemination that Creates Efficiencies
Overview: Child maltreatment presents a major challenge to society but is really part of a larger set of issues related to families who are or who might be involved with the child welfare system. This presentation focuses on a reconceptualization of how to approach the parenting intervention needs of the community in ways that create efficiencies. Communities cannot rely solely on the child welfare system to reduce the demand for child protective services action.
