Background Paper 2 Child Neglect in Scotland: Rapid review of the literature on intervention

Year: 2016
Topic: Child protection, Neglect
Author: Jane Scott and Brigid Daniel

The Centre for Child Wellbeing and Protection at the University of Stirling was commissioned by Scottish Government to undertake a rapid review of the literature in relation to programmes, approaches and interventions with children who may be experiencing neglect to inform the Child Protection Improvement Programme and the pilot programme of improvement work. The aim of this rapid review of the evidence was to identify the core and common elements and principles shown to be associated with effective practice with chronic neglect, including those incorporated within routine practice by a range of disciplines as well as those embedded within formal evidence-based programmes.
