Subject:Fwd: [Helfer Society Listserv] Call for papers

Please see the attached for a Call for Papers for a special issue of Child Abuse Review. This special issue will focus on "Abusive Head Trauma: Recognition, Response and Prevention". The guest editors of this special issue invite empirical contributions which: • improve our understanding of AHT, producing new knowledge for professional practice about its epidemiology, presentation, diagnosis, prognosis, outcomes or prevention; and/or • investigate specific training, prevention, or practice improvement(s) around AHT. This special issue seeks to present empirical research in a diversity of study samples and cultures, including responses and practices across multiple different professions and specialisations in practice, policy and research. New and challenging perspectives are encouraged, and submissions from those in academia, practice, or policy internationally are welcomed. Priority themes for the special issue include: • the scale and nature of AHT – prevalence and incidence – including how to improve knowledge about scale and nature across countries, populations and cultures; • professional practices improving recognition and diagnosis of AHT in healthcare settings; • professional practice changes to better tackle inter-agency collaboration and legal presentation; • how professional practices and healthcare institutions can improve the short and long-term outcomes after AHT in medical, rehabilitative, and social care systems and other institutional settings; • approaches to improved understanding and prevention of AHT, especially in those affected by substance abuse, other family violence, and poverty; • approaches to measuring effectiveness of practices addressing and preventing AHT; • professional practices designed to address the needs of international cultures and special populations of children, particularly those o with intellectual and developmental disabilities; o who are looked after children; and/or o who are other minorities at high risk of abuse and with specific needs. Deadline for submission of Abstracts: 30 April 2019, to: Child.Abuse.Review@baspcan.org.uk If you would like to discuss a possible contribution, please contact one of the guest editors: • Dr Vincent Palusci - Professor of Pediatrics, NYU School of Medicine, New York, NY, USA: vincent.palusci@nyulangone.org • Dr Gabriel Otterman - Medical Director, Child Protection Team, Uppsala University Children’s Hospital, Uppsala, Sweden: gabriel.otterman@akademiska.se -- Vincent J.
