What aspects of context (factors outside of the parent) influence information processing? child risk of injury developmentally inappropriate expectations may lead to inadequate supervision and an increased risk of child injury an inadequate number of rules (which may be interpreted as the result of inappropriate expectations on the part of the parent) were related to the number of injuries sustained by a child children’s lack of rule knowledge (and their parents’ inappropriate expectation of that knowledge) is related to risk of injury **TASNIA** Dixon, L., Browne, K., & Hamilton-Giachritsis, C.

This is achieved by Health Visitor’s collecting a series of data over the 1 year period as part of their routine practice. Importantly, key questions in data collection include whether or not at least one parent had been subjected to physical and/or sexual childhood abuse and whether the child was referred to Child Protection professional for suspected or actual maltreatment within the first year of life.

Controls: parents who have no reported history of childhood maltreatment who do not maltreat their own child.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
