CDC Child Abuse Technical Package

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a technical package to help states and communities prioritize strategies to prevent child abuse and neglect. These evidence-based strategies include those focused on prevention as well as approaches to lessen immediate and long-term harms. The strategies are intended to work in combination and reinforce each other. They include:
  • Strengthen economic supports for families
  • Change social norms to support parents and positive parenting
  • Provide quality care and education early in life
  • Enhance parenting skills to promote healthy child development
  • Intervene to lessen harms and prevent future risk
To download Preventing Child Abuse & Neglect: A Technical Package for Policy, Norm, and Programmatic Activities (PDF), click on this link to the CDC page. There you will find a link to the document.
