Hands holding paper cut-out family

Child Family Community Australia has released a new resource sheet, titled Risk and protective factors for child abuse and neglect. The resource sheet provides an overview of the risk and protective factors for child abuse and neglect in families. It is designed for practitioners and policy-makers who work in the areas of child maltreatment.

This paper was developed using a scan of relevant literature on risk and protective factors for child abuse and neglect (1998–2016). It is for information purposes only and should not be used as a risk assessment tool in child protection practice.
