Subject:FYI: LONGSCAN: Science to Practice - report release

FYI— (My apologies for the duplicate postings for some of you.) LONGSCAN: Science to Practice includes key findings and related practice and policy implications from the 20-year Longitudinal Studies of Child Abuse and Neglect funded throughout the two decades by the Children’s Bureau and managed in partnership with ACF’s Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation. Subsequent funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation supported a series of six meetings held throughout the country to share key findings from the study with stakeholders in child maltreatment prevention and intervention. Stakeholders included representatives from a wide variety of agencies and organizations serving children and families, parents, and adults who as children had been involved with Child Protective Services or participants in the LONGSCAN study. During these meetings, the research team and stakeholders developed practice and policy implications related to the findings. A senior health communications advisor helped frame the final set of materials. The LONGSCAN Investigators hope that these will be of immediate use to practitioners, families, and policy staff with interests in child well-being, the prevention of maltreatment, and the amelioration of its effects. LONGSCAN: Science to Practice may also be accessed online at : http://www.iprc.unc.edu/longscan/. More about LONGSCAN: * LONGSCAN is a multi-site longitudinal study of 1354 children identified in infancy or early childhood as being maltreated or at risk of maltreatment. The children being studied are culturally and ethnically diverse, from five geographically distinct areas. * LONGSCAN is a collaborative study involving investigators from the fields of pediatrics, psychology, social work, sociology, biostatistics, and public health who have diverse perspectives on child maltreatment. * LONGSCAN data collection is guided by a theoretical model that emphasizes the interplay of child and family characteristics with community and social variables. * The size and diversity of the sample enables LONGSCAN to examine the relative impact of various forms of maltreatment, singularly and in combination with others. The multi-site nature of LONGSCAN permits evaluation of the effectiveness of differing service delivery traits across localities, & across time as programs & policies change.
