This Dutch national report is published within the framework of the Daphne III programme Prevent and Combat Child Abuse: What works? An overview of regional approaches, exchange and research. The aim of the overall project was to generate relevant knowledge about current strategies that prevent Child Abuse and Neglect (CAN) in Europe. It compared five European countries: Germany, Hungary, Portugal, Sweden and the Netherlands.
The authors describe differences and similarities of the perceptions of parents and professionals in the Netherlands at five levels: the level of the professional, the level of the method/intervention, the setting/organization, the care system and the societal level.
Based on these reports and the discussions about the results during international meetings with the partners, the Verwey-Jonker Institute also wrote an international report.
The overall project was coordinated by the Netherlands Youth Institute and was carried out in collaboration with the Swedish Orebro regional council, the Hungarian Family Child Youth Association, the German Youth Institute, CESIS from Portugal and the Verwey-Jonker Institute from the Netherlands.
