Risk Assessment for Child Protective Services: A Review of the Empirical Literature on Instrument Performance.
Lyons, Peter; And Others
Social Work Research, v20 n3 p143-55 Sep 1996
Despite the increasing popularity of systematic risk assessment models by child protective services agencies, relatively few are empirically based. Reviews the empirical literature on 10 risk assessment models and concludes that although each model contains generally sound psychometric properties, there is still a need for further model development and for process and outcome evaluation of model implementation.
