This investigation tested the incremental utility of cognitive retraining as a component within a program designed to prevent child maltreatment. High-risk families (N = 96) were randomly assigned to a control condition, home visitation modeled after the Healthy Start program (unenhanced home visitation), or home visitation that included a cognitive component (enhanced home visitation). Mothers were identified late during pregnancy or soon after birth, and their participation continued for 1… Expand
A cognitive approach to child mistreatment prevention among medically at-risk infants.
The authors assessed the effectiveness of a home visitation program in enhancing the early parenting history of infants born at medical risk--a population that is at risk for mistreatment. AExpand
Impact of a statewide home visiting program to prevent child abuse.
TLDR
The HFAK program did not prevent child maltreatment, nor reduce the parental risks that had made families eligible for service, and research is needed to develop and test strategies to improve the effectiveness of home visiting. Expand
A transactional approach to preventing early childhood neglect: The Family Check-Up as a public health strategy
TLDR
It was found that family adversity moderated the impact of the intervention, such that the families with the most adverse circumstances were highly responsive to the intervention. Expand
Technology to Augment Early Home Visitation for Child Maltreatment Prevention: A Pragmatic Randomized Trial
TLDR
Eight 20-min computer-delivered modules for use by mothers during the course of early home visitation provided limited support for use of this software within EHV, contributing to the mixed results seen across different models of EHv for child maltreatment prevention. Expand
Impact of a statewide home visiting program on parenting and on child health and development.
TLDR
The HFAK program promoted child development and reduced problem behaviors at 2 years and impact could be strengthened by improving home visitor effectiveness in promoting effective parenting. Expand
Family risk as a predictor of initial engagement and follow-through in a universal nurse home visiting program to prevent child maltreatment.
TLDR
Examination of a universal home-based maltreatment prevention program for new mothers in Durham County, North Carolina suggests that while higher demographic risk increases families' initial engagement, it might also inhibit their follow-through. Expand
Home visiting for the prevention of child maltreatment: lessons learned during the past 20 years.
TLDR
How home visitation for the prevention of child maltreatment has evolved during the past 20 years is examined and how primary care providers may advocate to ensure that their patients have access to evidence-based home visiting programs that meet their needs is discussed. Expand

Effects of a cognitive adjustment program for Thai parents.
TLDR
The cognitive adjustment program was effective in altering parental attitudes toward child rearing, however, in order to enhance its efficacy, the program should be modified to be more intensive and it should be studied further for its effect on the potential for abuse. Expand
Do Early Childhood Interventions Prevent Child Maltreatment?
TLDR
