Chronic Neglect Special Issue

American Humane has undertaken a national initiative on chronic neglect, aiming to identify and develop strategies and tools to prevent chronic neglect, support at-risk families, and effect systems change. As part of this initiative, a recent issue of the Protecting Children journal (Vol. 24, No. 1) was devoted to articles on chronic neglect, focusing on innovative approaches and promising practices in prevention and intervention. Articles in the special issue, titled "Shining Light on Chronic Neglect: Core Issues Facing Our Most Vulnerable Families," include:

  • "How Can Neglected Organizations Serve Neglected Children?" by S. Steib and W. Whiting Blome
  • "Demonstration Models on Neglect: Lessons Learned" (focusing on projects funded by the Children's Bureau) by J. Denniston, S. M. Flanzer, and J. P. Shafer
  • "Mobilizing Community Responses to Chronic Neglect: A Research-to-Practice Approach" by K. Cahn and K. Nelson
  • "Building Healthy Families: An Innovative Approach to Working With Families Affected by Chronic Neglect" by M. Jonson-Reid, A. Swarnes, B. Wilson, M. J. Stahlschmidt, and B. Drake
  • "Chronic Neglect: Prediction and Prevention" by J. P. Mersky, J. Topitzes, and A. J. Reynolds
  • "Whatever It Takes: Illuminating a New Promising Practice for Responding to Chronic Neglect" by S. J. Altshuler, A. Cleverly-Thomas, and M. A. Murphy
