Subject:Call for Papers for Special CYSR Issue on Maltreatment of Infants and Toddlers

CALL FOR PAPERS Children and Youth Services Review We are seeking original manuscripts for a special issue of Children and Youth Services Review dedicated to advancing knowledge regarding the abuse and neglect of infants and toddlers. We are interested in papers that address individual-, family-, and community-level protective factors and risk factors for this age group and/or describe service strategies that effectively target these risk and protective factors, helping prevent maltreatment of young children. Theoretical papers that present an explanatory framework for why American children are at elevated risk of maltreatment risk during the early years are also sought. This issue will focus on children birth to age 5 who have been maltreated by their parents/caregivers or who are at high-risk for such maltreatment. It will include emerging research on descriptions of young children and their families involved in the public child welfare system; the role of individuals, communities and policies in preventing early maltreatment; and evaluations of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention programs targeting this age-group. This issue will include studies representing a range of research methodologies, including qualitative analyses appropriate for studying the life experiences of families with young children. The issue may also include theoretical papers relevant to understanding the needs and strengths of these families and how best to prevent early maltreatment. However, descriptions of programs that are not accompanied by findings from a rigorous evaluation will not be included in this issue. Guest Editors: Sacha Klein, Ph.D., Society for Research in Child Development, and Brenda Jones Harden, Ph.D., University of Maryland Preparation of Manuscripts: Please refer to the journal’s website: http://www.childwelfare.com/kids/cysr.htm for details.
