3. Résumé


«The findings from this study suggest that the form of maltreatment experienced by a child moderates the effectiveness of IY, a recommended PTP [parent training program] for families followed for maltreatment […]. First, the results show that IY is associated with a faster closure of the child’s case. Overall, participation in IY increases the probability of children’s cases being closed by 39%, above and beyond the effects of the other services usually provided by CPS. The moderation analyses suggest that participants in IY whose child is being followed by CPS for neglect or physical abuse or a combination of forms of maltreatment all benefit equally from IY, in terms of the probability of their children’s cases being closed. However, neglectful parents benefit from this program more than parents who have subjected their children to emotional maltreatment.» (p. 339)
