This chapter examines the current status of school-based detection, prevention, and intervention for child maltreatment. Empirical evidence and perspectives on the fields of school psychology, school-based prevention, and school and community cooperation are discussed in an effort to clarify current and future directions in regard to child maltreatment. The United States’ Institutes of Medicine Protractor is used as a framework to examine multi-tiered levels of prevention, treatment, and maintenance initiatives that may guide conceptualization of school-based child maltreatment efforts. 1 figure, 1 table, and numerous references.
