This publication summarizes findings from federal reviews of research studies and program evaluations to help communities improve outcomes for children exposed to violence. It cites evidence-based practices that practitioners and policymakers can use to implement prevention services and activities for these children.
The policy agenda represents a collective vision on the essential steps that should be taken in policies, programs, and practices to address the needs of these vulnerable infants and toddlers, who are at risk for a host of developmental problems that could follow them throughout their lives. Use it to engage policymakers in important conversations on revising policies to protect the youngest children in the child welfare system.
