Child Care/Child Abuse: The Final Report of the Dodge Project.
Ranck, Edna Runnels
This report describes the initiation, development, and institution of a series of activities relating to the use of child care programs in identifying, reporting, and treating child abuse victims. Events leading up to the proposal submitted by Children's Services of Morris County, New Jersey, a private nonprofit organization providing various child care services, to the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation are outlined in chapter I. Chapter II illustrates efforts to build a national caregiver network of programs using family day care as part of a child protective system. Chapter III describes the pilot training program designed for family day care providers in the Morris County Family Day Care Program and for the social workers in the Morris County District Office of the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services. In chapter IV, a 1-day conference on child care/child abuse is described, and emphasis is given to the advantages of using many community resources in order to produce such an event. Finally, chapter V offers conclusions and recommendations. Fifteen appendices, consisting of related materials and a selected bibliography complete the report. (Author/RH)
