Parental Substance Abuse as a Predictor of Child Maltreatment Re-Reports.
Wolock, Isabel; Magura, Stephen
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n12 p1183-93 Dec 1996
A two-year study of 239 families comprising both substance-abusing and nonsubstance-abusing parents found parental substance abuse greatly increased the likelihood of poorer family functioning and re-reports for maltreatment to the child protection services. The findings support the need for including parental substance abuse in risk assessment tools. (CR)
