This webinar on Specialized Violence: Child Abuse & Neglect is presented by Brianne Layden, PhD.

Experiencing child maltreatment has long been recognized as a risk factor for myriad adverse outcomes, including personality and interpersonal problems, self- and other-directed violence, psychopathology, and substance use; however, the factors that contribute to the perpetration of child abuse and neglect are far less understood. This webinar provides an overview of different forms and definitions of child abuse and neglect, as well as recent developments in the literature on risk factors for the perpetration of child maltreatment. In particular, perpetrator and child-specific risk factors are discussed, as well as risk factors associated with the family. This webinar also includes a discussion of case examples and utilizes the Child Abuse Risk Evaluation (CARE; Agar, 2003) to illustrate the use of structured professional judgment guidelines for assessing and managing risk for perpetrating child physical abuse and neglect.
