Subject:Section on Child Maltreatment: Society for Child and Family Policy and Practice - Division 37 of the American Psychological Association

The Section on Child Maltreatment, part of Division 37 of the American Psychological Association, is dedicated to supporting and promoting scientific inquiry, training, professional practice, and advocacy in the area of child maltreatment. This is the only permanent group within the American Psychological Association that focuses on child maltreatment issues. As Member-at-Large for this Section, I am working to expand our membership to further our mission in the child maltreatment field, and to send a clear message to the American Psychological Association that child maltreatment is an important issue, worthy of special attention. You do NOT have to be a psychologist or a member of APA to join this Section. The cost is only $30 per year, with no cost for the first year of membership. The Section has been active in working to advance scientific inquiry, training, collaboration, and professional practice as they relate specifically to child maltreatment. Special projects undertaken by the Section have included a task force on corporal punishment and participation in a working group on child maltreatment prevention through Community Health Centers. The Section has also been actively working on legislative efforts related to child maltreatment including the reauthorization of CAPTA and sponsoring a Congressional briefing on the prevention of child maltreatment. Membership in the Section on Child Maltreatment not only supports the many activities of the Section, but also includes individual benefits such as: • The Section Newsletter, which includes updates on child maltreatment related policy and legal issues, summaries of recent court cases, and innovations in treatment and research • Access to our internship guide which provides an up-to-date listing of internship training opportunities focusing on child maltreatment, child welfare, and family violence • Access to our curriculum guides designed to facilitate course development and the integration of materials on child maltreatment within graduate and undergraduate courses • Special programming and networking opportunities at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association • A special guide to selecting a graduate school with opportunities to develop expertise in child maltreatment. For additional information about the Section, please visit our website: http://www.apa.org/divisions/div37/child_maltreatment/child.html There are many ways that members can further the work of the Section. We would welcome your participation on a Section committee or task force or as an officer on our Executive Committee. Please contact me (hansonrf@musc.edu ) to learn more about our section and I will be happy to facilitate your involvement. Rochelle F. Hanson, Ph.D. Member-at-Large Rochelle F.
