Child Abuse and Neglect: The School's Response

Synopsis

"Abuse and neglect affect thousands of children every year, with potentially devastating consequences for victims, their families, and society as a whole. As the primary adults with whom children come into contact outside the home, school professionals have a unique opportunity - and responsibility - to identify maltreatment and respond effectively. This guide provides a succinct review of current knowledge on child maltreatment and links it specifically to practical applications in the schools. Illustrated throughout with clearly written, realistic case examples, the book will be equally valuable to practitioners, those involved in training and program development, and students preparing to enter the field."
