Background: The success of child interventions to reduce maltreatment in vulnerable populations will only make a significant contribution if families participate and engage in the programs. Understanding factors that may influence levels of engagement is important to program design and implementation Objective: To examine the differences between home visitation coach experiences of mothers perceived to be most vulnerable for child abuse and neglect and other mothers in their caseloads, in an attempt to identify possible factors influencing mother's levels of engagement in a comprehensive parent intervention study. Study Design: Qualitative descriptive design. Findings: Three themes reflecting the coaches' perceptions of the fragile state of these mothers and children's lives, and the multiple life distractions affecting the mother's ability to engage in program interventions were identified. Themes included: Mothers' struggles in meeting the emotional needs of self and child; Mothers' lack of support in navigating complicated and stressful life events and; Mother's inconsistency with program engagement is mediated through a trusting and caring relationship with coaches Conclusions: Any intervention must incorporate the voices and worldviews of the participants that a particular program is to serve. Vulnerable mothers' levels of engagement can be mediated by professionals who are sensitive to the individualized factors influencing the mothers' lives and decisions. Programs must continually evaluate the appropriateness and relevance of the interventions and provide for the multifaceted needs of vulnerable families.
