Child sexual and physical abuse, as well as incest, are Jewish problems that can be prevented most effectively through a comprehensive approach as described in this article. This model child abuse prevention program incorporates community education and outreach; therapeutic interventions; and environmental services, including homemakers, vocational guidance, financial assistance, camping experiences, and legal aid. This multifaceted program has demonstrated success in interrupting the multigenerational cycle of abuse.
