Subject:RE: risk assessment tools for assessing abuse and neglect

Child Welfare Information Gateway, a service of the Children’s Bureau, has a section of its website devoted to Assessment at http://www.childwelfare.gov/systemwide/assessment/. One of the major sub-sections addresses comprehensive family assessments (http://www.childwelfare.gov/systemwide/assessment/family_assess/), with links to tools, instruments, measures, and more. I hope this information is helpful.

Thank you for any assistance or references you would suggest. Sincerely, Cindy Currell, MSW, LISW-S University of Dayton
