Families at Risk: The Role of Parenting and Family Processes in Child Maltreatment and Intervention
This year’s conference featured presentations by experts from around the country, including Sherry Hamby, Laura Ann McCloskey, Judith Cohen, and John Lutzker and a host of internationally known discussants. Focusing on family dynamics, speakers addressed four topics: family processes underlying child maltreatment, intergenerational transmission of maltreatment, evidence-based interventions with maltreated children and their families, and future directions in child maltreatment prevention.
Penn State’s Child Maltreatment Solutions Network is a network of researchers and practitioners dedicated to combating child maltreatment through research, education, and engagement. This conference is made possible with the support of many Penn State units, as well as external partners.
