Social Relationships of Physically Abused Schoolchildren

Suzanne Salzinger, Richard Feldman & Daisy Ng-Mak
This study examined the social relationships and behavior of physically abused schoolchildren. Its emphasis on peer relationships was based on the fact that abused children’s basic socializing and support system -- their relationship with family -- was expected to be damaged and give rise to internalizing and externalizing problems. Their peer networks therefore were expected to play a disproportionate role in their adaptive functioning in many domains of development. Family relationships, operating through social learning...

Cross Site Evaluation – Quality Improvement Center for Differential Response (QIC-DR)

Lisa Merkel-Holguin, Ying-Ying T. Yuan, Keri Jowers, Dana Hollinshead, John Fluke & Amy Hahn

DR is also sometimes used to refer to CPS systems that are comprised of only one pathway for responding to screened-in reports, namely IR, but includes a diversion component, which triages screened-out reports to community agencies. This dataset does...
