Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to understand the recently documented increase in rates of child maltreatment and neglect in the US Army. The project employs a three prong research methodology using clinical chart reviews, survey methodology of key informants, and demographic community analyses to 1 facilitate understanding of the phenomenology of Army child neglect, 2 identify child, parent, and family risk and protective factors that contribute to neglect, 3 identify military community contributions to neglect, including deployment, and 4 identify surrounding community factors that may also contribute risk or protection to child neglect behaviors.
