Associate Professor Katie Maguire-Jack is editor of “Neighborhoods, Communities, and Child Maltreatment: A Global Perspective,” which explores a diverse range of research relating to the impact of communities on child maltreatment and parenting.
“‘Neighborhoods, Communities, and Child Maltreatment’ includes perspectives from around the globe on the critical role that communities play in families' lives,” said Maguire-Jack. “It delves into the meaning and impact of neighborhoods across different contexts, introduces innovative community-level maltreatment prevention strategies, and highlights advanced methodological approaches for studying these issues. It is my hope that this book will advance research and policy for effective child maltreatment prevention with an understanding of the importance of communities."
