Mandel School Faculty Receive $2.3 Million to Study Child Maltreatment

Jun 23 2014

NICHHD logoMandel School faculty Claudia Coulton and David Crampton, along with Case Western Reserve faculty colleagues Jill Korbin and Jim Spilsbury, received a $2.3 million grant last month from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to investigate how neighborhoods influence child maltreatment rates.

Led by principal investigator Jim Spilsbury, the team of researchers will study child maltreatment in 20 Cleveland neighborhoods, examining the role that neighborhood conditions, social service availability and use, and the maltreatment reporting process play in influencing child abuse and neglect rates. The investigators are partnering with Cuyahoga County’s Division of Children and Family Services to interview caseworkers assigned to the studied neighborhood. Residents will be interviewed, and census data, property records, social service reports and day care records will be analyzed. The study is a collaboration among the Mandel School, the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve.

The research builds upon a National Center for Child Abuse and Neglect-funded study conducted in the mid-1990s by Coulton and Korbin, which found that Cleveland neighborhood rates of child maltreatment varied widely and that neighborhood conditions such as high childcare burden, concentrated poverty and residential instability had an impact on the presence or lack of child maltreatment.
