Description

Intergenerational patterns of child abuse and neglect are complex. Although most children who experience maltreatment do not go on to abuse or neglect their own children, studies have consistently found they are more likely to have children who are abused or neglected than children who were born to parents who had not experienced childhood maltreatment. This brief presents a summary of findings from an analysis of the intergenerational links present in the NSW child protection system using currently available historical data from the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) client information systems.
