This timely resource analyzes home visits as a primary intervention for at-risk families with infants and young children and details innovative programs for home service delivery. Focusing on family violence, mental illness and alcohol and substance abuse as major challenges to child development, the book presents practical strategies for home visitors to address and prevent problems while fostering an improved environment for raising children. Contributors offer a realistic framework for planning, developing, and training an effective home visitation workforce and tailoring interventions to fit individual family dynamics. And the book's international focus provides a variety of perspectives on evidence-based programs that support families raising children in distressed neighborhoods.

Among the featured topics:

  • Home visitation as a primary prevention tool for violence.
  • Developmental parenting home visiting to prevent violence.
  • Supporting the paraprofessional home visitor.
  • Engagement and retention in home visiting child abuse prevention programs.
  • Addressing psychosocial risk factors among families in home visiting programs.
  • Home visitation programs in the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

Home Visitation Programs: Preventing Violence and Promoting Healthy Early Child Development is an essential resource for researchers, graduate students and professionals in child and school psychology, social work, educational policy, family advocacy and public health.
