Given several recent high-profile child maltreatment cases in the UK, this knowledge review was commissioned to provide evidence on what works in protecting children living in ‘highly resistant’ families where they may suffer, or are likely to suffer, significant harm because of ill-treatment or the impairment of health or development due to abuse or neglect. It is based on a rapid review of the research literature involving systematic searching and analysis of key data. It summarises the best available evidence from 2000 to 2009 that will help service providers to improve services and, ultimately, outcomes for children, young people and their families.
