Summary Traditional child maltreatment investigations seek to determine whether maltreatment has occurred, or whether the child is at risk of maltreatment, before implementing an appropriate intervention. Alternative responses to child maltreatment differ in that they focus on assessing the family's strengths and needs, and aim to prevent future maltreatment, with less attention given to making a formal determination of maltreatment. This report outlines the findings of a study of case level data reported to the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System by six states - Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma, and Wyoming - that offer both alternative response and traditional investigation in child maltreatment cases. The authors examine case characteristics, circumstances of reports, and outcomes for 313,838 children of whom 140,072 received an alternative response during 2002.
