Center for Child Policy
In collaboration with other child and family advocacy organizations, we identify the most critical issues and dilemmas facing the child welfare/child protection field today.
We do extensive research to clarify the issues and the current state of evidence, and we synthesize our findings into policy statements, white papers, amicus briefs, and other vehicles to promote national and international policy change to support best practice. All of our policy work is done by interdisciplinary teams of practitioners, academicians, researchers, and thought leaders in the field of child maltreatment. Primary partners currently include the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC) and the New York Foundling.
