A recent issue of Protecting Children focuses exclusively on programs funded by American Humane's Rocky Mountain Quality Improvement Center (RMQIC) to address the issue of child maltreatment by substance-abusing parents. This is the first of two volumes of Protecting Children dedicated to disseminating results from the RMQIC. Articles include:

  • "A Collaborative Approach to Healing Substance Abuse and Child Neglect in an Urban American Indian Community" by M. Bussey and N. M. Lucero
  • "Recovering Together Program: Tailoring Treatment for Mothers With Substance Abuse Problems and Their Children" by D. S. Spear and K. E. Moorstein
  • "The Ada County Family Violence Court Grant Project: A New Collaboration to Better Protect Children and Families" by M. M. Bonney, A. M. Moe, and R. D. Morse
  • "When Is It Safe to Return Children Home When Parental Substance Abuse Is a Concern?" by J. L. Roguski
  • "When Good Parenting Doesn't Work: Children With Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders" by E. B. Bisgard

The RMQIC is funded by the Children's Bureau at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Children's Bureau hopes to promote regional research and program implementation in child welfare through the QICs.
