The parent-child relationship and adverse childhood experiences

A good parent-child relationship is important for child development. Interventions can improve parental sensitivity and increase secure attachment, but the effects are modest. Offering interventions to improve parent-child relationships is only appropriate in specific target groups. The same holds true for interventions to prevent child maltreatment. It is important to select interventions that have been tested for effectiveness.
