The 20-year project, Longitudinal Studies of Child Abuse and Neglect (LONGSCAN) ended on Sept. 30, 2012, after 21 years of funding from ACF, with supplementary support from NIH. The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation has challenged the researchers to present their findings in ways that support the work of practitioners and policy makers. Each of the five LONGSCAN local sites (East, South, Midwest, Northwest and Southwest) held local meetings to review the LS findings with practitioners, policy makers, and (in two cases) former LONGSCAN subjects. These findings, and the recommendations that followed, were discussed at a March 19 meeting in Washington. The continuing work refining the results and the findings will be shared and discussed on this webinar.
