SafeCare®

Entries in this row combine information across all versions of SafeCare except for SafeCare Augmented. The main version of SafeCare has no high- or moderate-quality impact studies. Some other versions of SafeCare have at least one such study, but no version of the model other than SafeCare Augmented meets HHS criteria for an evidence-based home visiting model. Planned Activities Training (a SafeCare module) and Cellular Phone Enhanced Planned Activities Training (a SafeCare module with an add-on) show evidence of effectiveness.

The Conflict TacticsScale-ParentChild (CTS-PC) assesses neglectful, psychologically aggressive, and abusive parenting behaviors and acts. The authors used the subscales for nonviolent discipline, psychological aggression, and physical assault. Four items comprising the assault subscale were not used because of abuse reporting concerns.
