Presentation Type: paper presentation

Synopsis: This presentation will provide an overview of the Florida statewide multidisciplinary, multi-agency child death review system, and explore results of a study of fatal child maltreatment cases that occurred over a four year period (1999-2002). Results will focus on mental health risk and protective factors associated with perpetrators and child victims. These factors have been explored to better understand the etiology of child abuse. Such information may be useful in reviewing alleged abuse cases and in determining appropriate interventions. This knowledge may assist professionals in designing prevention programs that have a higher likelihood of being effective.
