Costs and Effectiveness of Interventions in Child Maltreatment.
Dubowitz, Howard
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v14 n2 p177-86 1990
The paper reviews cost-effectiveness evaluations of child maltreatment interventions. Though methodologically sound research is limited, existing research suggests that home health visitors, lay group counseling, and family and group therapy are promising interventions. Medical foster care substantially reduces costs, but its effectiveness has not been determined. (Author/JDD)
