Subject:Re: intergenerational CPS involvement

I have seen some of the risk instruments use such information as a factor. However, there are so many problems with child abuse risk assessments - many more than SVP of violence risk assessments. So, it becomes rather meaningless (or, at best, a minor risk factor). Much more important, I think, would be the clinical expression of that past abuse - world view, future expectations, parenting skills, etc BB On Mon, Feb 10, 2014 at 4:15 PM, Kristi Slack > wrote: Dear Colleagues—can anyone point me to a study or source that provides an estimate of the percentage of parents currently involved in CPS who were involved in CPS as children? And/or, the percentage of parents currently involved in CPS (eg., with an open case) who were in foster care as a child. Thank you! -kristi slack Kristen S.
