New Child Protection Research Center

The American Humane Association (AHA) is launching a new national child protection research center to operate under the leadership of John Fluke, Ph.D. The American Humane Center for Child Protective Services Research will address issues related to the improvement of public child protective services and will include the development of evidence-based policy and practices. Initial areas of focus will include:

  • Assessment and decision-making processes in child welfare cases
  • Examination of racial disproportionality in the child welfare system
  • Development of ways to implement evidence-based intervention and treatment practices at agencies and community service providers
  • Development of a global network of child abuse and neglect data-collection systems and professionals

Dr. Patricia Schene is joining the center as its first senior fellow.
