dc.description.abstractChild protection recurrence exists where children and families have repeated involvement with authorities responsible for preventing and addressing harm caused by child maltreatment. Prior research has examined repeated reports, repeated investigations, and repeated substantiations of child maltreatment. Child protection recurrence is problematic for children, as concerns about abuse or neglect remain unresolved despite repeated contact with child protection authorities. For families, repeated investigations can be experienced as invasive, stressful, and stigmatising. For governments, recurrence represents repeated work screening and possibly investigating allegations about the same children and families. It also raises questions about the accuracy of risk assessments designed to prioritise services, and the effectiveness of interventions designed to prevent further maltreatment. Child protection recurrence therefore raises questions about the effectiveness and efficiency of child protection services.
