Overview report

There is an overview report wich outlines the policy and practice regarding the full circle of combating child abuse, ranging from prevention to treatment in these five countries.

This international report is based on a five country study in Europe within the framework of the Daphne III programme Prevent and Combat Child Abuse: What works? An overview of regional approaches, exchange and research. The aim of the overall project was to generate relevant knowledge about current strategies that prevent Child Abuse and Neglect (CAN) in Europe. It compared five European countries: Germany, Hun-gary, Portugal, Sweden and the Netherlands.

The authors describe differences and similarities of the perceptions of parents and professionals at five levels: the level of the professional, the level of the method/intervention, the set-ting/organization, the care system and the societal level. Finally, the authors draw conclusions about what the participating countries can learn from one another by answering the following question: do prevention strategies and actions against child abuse and negligence correspond to what works in practice, as experienced by parents and professionals?
