Positive relationship factors may help break cycle of child maltreatment
From the CDC:
“The Journal of Adolescent Health released a special supplement investigating the role of safe, stable, nurturing relationships (SSNRs) and social contexts in the cycle of child maltreatment across generations. Efforts focused on enhancing SSNRs between parents and children, as well as between parents and other adults, may be a helpful prevention strategy for breaking the cycle of child maltreatment and promoting life-long health.”
The articles in the special supplement are available at no-cost, and the CDC announcement includes links to additional resources on the prevention of child maltreatment.
