The Ray E. Helfer Society, founded in 1999 and named in honor of Dr. Ray E. Helfer, was originally established as an honorary society of physicians seeking to provide medical leadership regarding the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and research concerning child abuse and neglect. It has grown to be the primary sub-specialty society for physicians devoted to the problem of maltreated children.

Our Vision: Children will thrive in a society that values them.

Our Mission: To help prevent and reduce the harm resulting from child maltreatment, by advancing the work of physicians in the areas of education, clinical care, research and advocacy.

The Ray Helfer Society is now the publisher of The Quarterly Update. The Quarterly Update is a journal that reviews recent peer-reviewed articles in the medical literature on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect.
Medical, legal, mental health and social work professionals known for their expertise and experience summarize the articles, chosen from hundreds of medical journals. These experts address the validity and significance of an article and how it relates to previously published research and clinical experience.

This timely information keeps child abuse professionals apprised of the most recent findings, informs their clinical practice, and improves their ability to make sound decisions, based on the latest data.
