Subject:Re: "Second generation" child welfare involved families

Thanks, Richard--This was my dissertation. Rachel, I would be happy to share the details of my intergenerational findings with you. In addition to the content, the reference list might be helpful since we were clearly not the only ones studying this phenomenon. Please keep in mind, however, that our cross-generational child welfare involvement data are in the context of a home visiting intervention aimed at preventing child maltreatment. The research comes from the Massachusetts Healthy Families Evaluation conducted by Tufts University's Interdisciplinary Evaluation Research (TIER). The website lists a number of resources from two different studies that examined intergenerational child welfare involvement: http://ase.tufts.edu/tier/publications/ Here is the direct link to one of our reports (funded by Pew) http://www.pewtrusts.org/~/media/legacy/uploadedfiles/pcs_assets/2013/HealthyFamiliesMassachusettsreportpdf.pdf. I believe that the final report will be released to the public shortly.
