Professor Christopher Wildeman has a new study out in JAMA Pediatrics that has received a good deal of media attention this past week. In it, he and his coauthors argue that annual rates of confirmed child maltreatment understate the number of children maltreated during childhood - according to their findings, maltreatment will be confirmed for one in eight children in the US by age eighteen. Read the study here, or look at coverage over at NPR, the New York Daily News, or U.S. News and World Report. Congratulations, Chris!
