Integration of Research and Treatment

  • David Kolko
Part of the Issues in Clinical Child Psychology book series (ICCP)


This chapter seeks to promote the integration of research and treatment practices in the area of child abuse and neglect. By encouraging this conceptual and practical rapprochement, it is hoped that the knowledge base in the area of child maltreatment can be expanded and made more relevant. A primary objective is to describe areas that may benefit from further empirical attention in clinical practice. As background, I will summarize recent literature describing or evaluating interventions and programs in the areas of sexual abuse, physical abuse, various forms of neglect, psychological maltreatment, and exposure to family violence. Of course, there may be considerable overlap among these subtypes. Certainly, progress is needed in further articulating clinical and therapeutic characteristics and the context in which treatment occurs. There are several excellent sources for gaining a more comprehensive perspective on the treatment outcome literature and details of relevant studies along with insightful recommendations for future work in each area (see Becker et al., 1995; Finkelhor & Berliner, 1995; Lutzker & Campbell, 1994; Oates & Bross, 1995; Wolfe, 1994).
