Federico, Ron, Ed.; And Others
The report describes the design of a community development model for child abuse and neglect which used resources already existing in a rural area. The first section presents basic generalizations about rural areas, services, and rural human services professionals. Section II presents working papers, definitions, and concepts used in the project. Contents include papers on community responsibility in child abuse, societal and institutional abuse and neglect, operationalized definitions, self help groups oriented toward social change and children's rights. The development of ACCR (Appalachian Citizens for Children's Rights) is detailed in Section III. Section IV examines human service systems which exist in most rural communities. Covered are social services, health services, law enforcement, education, recreation, child care, and self help services. A final section discusses organization of self help programs in rural communities. (CL)
