I am available to give keynote or other invited presentations on child maltreatment prevention in the U.S.  My research focuses on the relationship between economic stress and child maltreatment, and the role of economic support in preventing child maltreatment.  My talks on these topics offer strategies for improving the U.S., state and local infrastructures for preventing child abuse and neglect, and on how to improve practice with families at risk for child maltreatment. Examples of titles include:

“Poverty-informed Practice: Manageable Steps to Enhance Interventions with Families in Poverty”


“Preventing Child Maltreatment with the U.S. Economic Safety Net”


“Strengths-based Practice in Child Maltreatment Prevention: Knowledge Base, Strategies, and Gaps”
