Abstract

Progress has been made in recent years, particularly but by no means exclusively in the USA (for example, Arruabarrena, de Paúl, Indias, & García, 2016; Fallon et al., 2013; Hyslop & Keddell, 2018), to move beyond a simplistic bias vs need approach to explaining ethnic disparities in child maltreatment and/or out-of-home care.
