Dear Student,
Hello and thank you for using Brainmass. I suggest this outline.

1. What is an evidence-based child maltreatment intervention? Explain in 100 words.
2. What then are the key characteristics of such interventions? Explain in 150 words.

Obviously, you can make this much longer if you like. You can add further sections that explore each character and provide an example of why they are relevant. Good luck with your studies.
