A Prospective Validation of California’s Family Risk Assessment

A Prospective Validation of California’s Family Risk Assessment.  2007.  Because additional counties chose to adopt California’s Family Risk Assessment, the state opted to conduct another validation of the family risk assessment.  The objective of this validation study was to assess how well the current risk assessment estimates future maltreatment, particularly across subgroups, and, if necessary, propose revisions to improve its classification abilities.
