Evaluating a community intervention to reduce the risk of child abuse : methodological strategies in conducting neighborhood surveys.
Building on the ecological approach to child abuse, the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect is supporting a number of community-based prevention initiatives.
One such program, based in Boston, is designed to build a caring community in which families can be empowered to break patterns of abusive and neglectful behavior.
Independent evaluation is central to the program.
A multi-level strategy has been designed, incorporating information from census and other databases, from random household surveys, and from families participating directly in services provided.
This paper reposes on the second level of the evaluation, designed to assess community social support, attitudes about parenting, perceptions of the neighborhood, and ways in which these may relate to child abuse.
