Gibbs, D., Martin, S. L., Clinton-Sherrod, A., Hardison Walters, J., & Johnson, R. (2011). Child maltreatment within military families. (RTI Press Publication No. RB-0002-1105). Research Triangle Park, NC: RTI Press. DOI: 10.3768/rtipress.2011.rb.0002.1105
Attention to child maltreatment in the military has risen in recent years in response to greater focus on family well-being and evolving response to domestic violence. This research brief describes aspects of military life that may protect against risks for child maltreatment or increase such risks. Based on this evidence, we suggest a research agenda to inform prevention and intervention efforts.
