Making the Public Case for Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention: A FrameWorks Message Memo

Apr 01, 2004
  • Description

The goal of this work is to evaluate the existing body of research available to Prevent Child Abuse America against the findings that emerge from new research, and to identify promising ways to reframe these issues in ways that engage people in prevention, motivate them to prioritize proven policies and programs, and overcome existing mental roadblocks. To that end, this Memo attempts to describe the translation process necessary to engage the public in solutions by identifying specific practices that research suggests would advance public understanding as well as those that are likely to impede it. This research analysis is part of New FrameWorks Research on Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention. Please visit our website for more information.
