This intervention seeks to reduce the risk of repeat child maltreatment through a multi-pronged intervention that enhances the identification, case management, and treatment of mothers receiving preventive services.

The study intervention is adapted from Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR), which is designed to treat post-traumatic stress dis-order (PTSD) and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) to foster positive parenting to reduce child maltreatment and enhance maternal and child well-being.

In 2021, SMSC was awarded an NICHD R01 Grant.
