Child Maltreatment Solutions Network
The Child Maltreatment Solutions Network (CMSN) focuses on the causes, prevention, detection, consequences, and treatment of child abuse and neglect. The CMSN is dedicated to improving the well-being of children, youth, and families, while expanding Penn State’s internationally recognized expertise in research, practice, and education.
We provide opportunities and support for collaborative and translational science in order to address the complex problems of child maltreatment. Our work covers the spectrum, ranging from research on child development and clinical treatments that foster child health, to public policy that promotes child safety and wellbeing.
The CMSN is the recipient of the first ever National Institutes of Health P50 award to establish a Capstone Center for Child Maltreatment Research and Training (PI: Noll). The P50 provides funding and opportunities for collaborative and translational science, ranging from research on child development to clinical treatments to public policy.
