Welcome to the Research Review. Each month join our Chief Research and Strategy Officer, Dr. Bart Klika, as he does a quick run-down of emerging research and hot topics related to child abuse and neglect prevention.
In this research review, Dr. Klika examines the recent release of the American Academy of Pediatrics policy statement on corporal punishment. In addition, Dr. Klika reviews two research studies, one looking at bans on corporal punishment and the other looking at No Hit Zones.
