Overview

Evidence-based interventions are increasingly being required by third-party payers and an evidence-based orientation has come to define ethical practice. This compendium of short, how-to chapters focuses on the programs and interventions to prevent child maltreatment that have the best scientific evidence supporting their effectiveness. Interventions and programs discussed include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Multisystemic Therapy, Coping Cat, and many more. Busy practitioners will appreciate this book's implementation of evidence-based practices by providing the practical and "what now" rather than using the typical academic approach.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"A useful handbook for new and experienced practitioners who work with child welfare clients and for those who refer child welfare clients to therapists. It is simultaneously practical and thought-provoking."
Sherrill Clark, Ph.D., Program Evaluation Specialist, University of California School of Social Welfare, California Social Work Education Center

"This volume represents an important step in the diffusion of evidence-based practices and programs to child welfare stakeholders. Although child maltreatment has serious deleterious consequences for children, families, and society, the child welfare system has been slow to embrace evidence-based practices. Dr. Rubin is commended for compiling a comprehensive collection, with chapters authored by many leading treatment developers and researchers, of those interventions and programs that have demonstrated effectiveness or are among the most promising in the field."
Scott, Henggeler, Ph.D., Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Director, Family Services Research Center, Medical University of South Carolina

"At long last, a welcomed and timely resource is available that identifies effective evidence-based intervention programs for at-risk and abusing and neglecting families. It is well written and organized to inform child welfare practitioners, therapists and mental health professionals about prevention and intervention programs specific to problems and needs of individuals, families, and communities. This book should become a standard reference and resource for students, agency administrators, and practicing professionals."
Alberta J. Ellett, Ph.D., Director & PI of the UGA School of Social Work Child Welfare Education Program, University of Georgia, School of Social Work

"Allen Rubin has edited an impressive collection of original chapters authored by experts in the field of child maltreatment, into a comprehensive summary of empirically supported interventions. Topics are exceptionally diverse, ranging from directly treating abused children, family work, therapy with children exposed to parental domestic violence and substance abuse, and parent training programs. All the structured programs with high levels of empirical support are included, making this an invaluable resource for all providers of services in the area of child maltreatment. This would also make an excellent primary textbook for courses focused on child maltreatment."
Bruce A. Thyer, Ph.D., LCSW, BCBA, Editor, Research on Social Work Practice College of Social Work Florida State University
