Its articles address prevention measures such as:

· Using risk factors to create accurate risk assessments;
· Investing in proven community-wide interventions;
· Integrating home-visiting programs into prevention efforts;
· Rethinking the approach to families with drug or alcohol abuse; and
· Expanding programs to prevent sexual abuse.
