In a perfect world, research informs practice, and practice suggests research. But in reality, researchers complain that nobody reads their findings, and practitioners who make the time to read research complain that it is difficult to understand and that the implications for practice are unclear. This videotape bridges the gap between researchers and practitioners as it addresses the following subjects: family violence and its relationship to child abuse; how cultural differences impact assessment; incestuous families; and what kinds of children are in foster care.
