Hi Glenn, I have found the following articles to be good on the issue of maltreatment in foster care: Biehal, N. & Parry, E. (2010) Maltreatment and Allegations of Maltreatment in Foster Care. A Review of the Evidence. Retrieved from: http://www.york.ac.uk/inst/spru/research/pdf/FCabuse.pdf Minty, B. & Bray, S. (2001) ‘Allegations against foster carers: An in-depth study’ in Child Abuse Review, 10(5), 336 – 350. Many thanks, Eavan From: bounce-96460344-54479415@list.cornell.edu [mailto:bounce-96460344-54479415@list.cornell.edu ] On Behalf Of Glenn Higgins Sent: May-27-13 4:46 PM To: Child Maltreatment Researchers Subject: abuse in foster care Can someone suggest a good article or report on abuse that happens in foster care? I am interested in the rates of abuse and the factors that lead to abuse in care. Does anything like this exist? GH
