Parenting Programs for the Prevention of Child Physical Abuse Recurrence-A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

About the Course:

Child physical abuse is an issue of global concern. Syntheses of the evidence on parenting programs for reducing rates of physical abuse recidivism have, to date, not been able to establish effectiveness. The current systematic review updates prior reviews and overcomes some of the methodological issues they encountered by pooling trial-level data from a well-defined scope of trials of parenting interventions aimed at preventing the re-abuse of children by parents with substantiated or suspected physical abuse history. Overall, this review presents evidence supporting the effectiveness of parenting behavioral programs based on social learning theory for reducing hard markers of child physical abuse recidivism.

This course is based on the article, Parenting Programs for the Prevention of Child Physical Abuse Recurrence-A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis created by Kristina Vlahovicova, MSc in 2017.
