ABOUT THE SURVEY In 2011, Child Trends, with support from Casey Family Programs, conducted a national survey to gather information about state policies that guide child welfare agencies work in preventing child maltreatment from occurring or reoccurring. Specifically, the survey asked about the child welfare agency s policies, programs, and services for families who are considered at-risk for the occurrence or reoccurrence of child maltreatment. Defining Prevention : In completing the survey, states were asked specifically to consider activities designed for children and families who have already come to the attention of the child welfare agency, such as through a referral of abuse or neglect, or a family self-referral, to prevent maltreatment from occurring or reoccurring. The services and programs addressed in the survey might fall under what is more typically known in some states as family support or family preservation activities. The target population for these services could include children who had experienced one or more incidences of abuse and/or neglect, or who have not yet experienced maltreatment but are determined to be at-risk for an occurrence.
