Continuing-Education Video Addresses Children Exposed to Trauma and Interventions for Maltreatment
According to a new continuing education video by AHRQ, an urgent need currently exists to augment the evidence base on interventions addressing child maltreatment. Several interventions show promise in improving child well-being and child welfare outcomes, including a home-visiting approach with maltreating parents called SafeCare® and a foster-parent training program called Keeping Foster Parents Trained and Supported (KEEP). However, the video, based on the 2013 comparative effectiveness review “Child Exposure to Trauma: Comparative Effectiveness of Interventions Addressing Maltreatment,” explores major research gaps and highlights the need for collaborative clinical trials supported by a multisite research network. The video is available for continuing education credit from AHRQ.
