What works in tackling child abuse and neglect?

Date: 29th January 2013
Category: General measures of implementation

A manual has been created by the Netherlands Youth Institute as the main outcome of the Daphne Project 'Prevent and Combat Child Abuse: What works? An overview of regional approaches, exchange and research' that was funded by the European Commission.

The manual is directed at policy makers, managers and professionals. It is based on the Convention of the Rights of the Child, the related General Comment and the currently available evidence based knowledge.

It also draws on the practice-based knowledge regarding the quality of the systems, services and professionals in Germany, Hungary, Portugal, Sweden and The Netherlands and a small study among professionals and parents in these countries.
