Fiche synthèse

1. Objectifs


Intentions :
« This study investigates violence reported to child protection services (CPS), which included child abuse (physical, sexual or emotional), and a passive form of child aggression, child neglect. » (p. 188)

Questions/Hypothèses :
« The research questions were: 1) when are children more at risk of recurrence after a first report to CPS, what does the risk distribution look like over time, and 2) what are the determinants of recurrence risk. » (p. 188)

2. Méthode


Échantillon/Matériau :
« A longitudinal cohort of 425 children reported for the first time at the Montreal CPS agency is under examination. These cases were first documented in the Quebec Incidence Study of CPS reports (QIS: Tourigny et al., 2003) [...]. » (p. 188)

Type de traitement des données :

3. Résumé


« Every case was documented in terms of individual, familial, and socioeconomic characteristics at the time of initial report. These factors were used as potential predictors of recurrence. Results of a multivariate analysis (Cox regression) showed that the following factors were significant predictors for the risk of recurrence: young age, child disability, caregiver number of problems, substantiation and case status. The most important finding was that service delivery did not predict recurrence once surveillance was controlled for. Surveillance also reduced the risk of recurrence. » (p. 188)
