This intensive course is designed for trained researchers from multiple disciplines (e.g., public health, social work and social sciences) who are interested in applying their disciplinary expertise to examining topics related to child abuse. It will provide basic background on the child abuse problem from multiple perspectives and facilitate cross-disciplinary exploration of controversies and related unanswered research questions, drawing on the recent IOM report and published calls for research.
The class will meet for 15 contact hours over a 5-day period and include information about accessing available data sources, attention to the ethical issues related to child abuse research, and how the social service and legal systems may impact the data and the research questions. Each participant will be expected to conduct an in-depth literature review on a topic of interest and outline the design of a study to examine that topic.
In addition to didactic sessions, this course will include intensive mentorship with a senior researcher with experience in child abuse research. Attendees will meet in the afternoons with mentors to develop the foundations of a research project focused on child maltreatment. Participants will have the opportunity to continue consultation with the mentor after course completion.
The last day to register for this training is June 6, 2018
