Wood, James M.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n4 p379-89 Apr 1997
Analysis of data from 409 substantiated child abuse/neglect cases involving Hispanic caretakers found 7 of 19 indicators correctly predicted both allegations and substantiations of re-abuse/re-neglect. These indicators included prior abuse/neglect history of family, number of victims, primary caretaker abused as child, poor neglect/abuse history of family, inadequate supervision in current incident, and intellectual limits of primary caretaker.
