Subject:recent research on INTERVENTIONS for maltreatment and variability by race/ethnicity

Dear Colleagues, I am looking for research on whether the interventions assigned to families with child maltreatment vary by race/ethnicity (in other words, are families from some groups more likely to be referred to therapy while families from other groups have more adversarial court interventions) for the same kinds of child maltreatment. This would--in a sense--be a more recent version of Tjaden & Thoennes, 1992. Thank you! Lisa Fontes, Ph.D. Please send materials to me at: LFontes@uww.umass.edu if you don't want to share them here.
