Abstract:Implications for practice. The results suggest that investigators need assistance in using the CERAP form and avoiding heuristics (and their associated errors). Such assistance can take the form of revised CERAP training, periodic "retraining," and support for supervisors in the use of good decision making practices. Training would teach good decision making skills, how to avoid heuristics and emphasize the necessity of using the risk assessment instrument. Improvements in decision making would result and could favorably affect the safety of child reported for maltreatment.
