SVRI & Heard University of KwaZulu Natal. (2017). Developing an early parenting intervention in South Africa. Pretoria: SVRI.

Abstract 

Maltreatment has short- and long-term negative consequences for a child’s physical and mental health. When coupled with harsh parenting practices as a result of poverty and adversity, the child’s risk of later becoming a perpetrator or victim of violence is increased. Identifying effective and scalable primary prevention interventions is critical. Focused short-term interventions that promote responsive parenting can be effective in reducing child maltreatment; however, evidence for effective interventions in low- and middle-income countries is limited.
