With over 30 years of experience in evaluating child abuse treatment and prevention programs and child welfare reform efforts, Dr. Daro's research and writing have focused on developing reform strategies that embed individualized, targeted prevention efforts within more universal efforts to alter normative standards and community context. She also is examining strategies to create more effective partnerships among public child welfare agencies, community-based prevention efforts and informal support systems. In 2004, Dr. Daro received the Anne Cohn Donnelly Child Abuse Prevention Leadership Award from Prevent Child Abuse America in recognition of her success in translating research finding into measureable improvements in service delivery and public policy reforms. She has served as President of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children and as Treasurer and Executive Council member of the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect.
