This course is designed for scholars and graduate students from varied disciplines wanting to increase their understanding of the principles of prevention applied to child maltreatment. The course will provide participants with an overview of key concepts underlying prevention of child abuse and neglect from a public health perspective and with special emphasis on eliminating disparities. The course will include a focus on principles of public health research and practice applied to Child Abuse and Neglect (CA&N) prevention as well as address different aspects of prevention research and evaluation (e.g., policy studies, intervention trials, and program evaluation) with examples from the child abuse and neglect literature. Through readings, lectures, and class discussions, participants will learn about and practice developing conceptual models and logic models and will receive mentoring as they develop their ideas for the design and evaluation of a child abuse prevention intervention.

Participants in this course will also join participants in other Kempe Summer Institute courses in attending daily lunch time seminars addressing a range of topics on CA&N research led by prominent leaders in the field. Each participant will leave the course with an outline of a proposed project that has been developed with input from fellow students and from faculty mentors and will receive mentoring online and via Zoom over a period of six months. 

The last day to register for this training is June 6, 2018
