9780335217649: Child Abuse: Towards a Knowledge Base

The definitive guide to child abuse--updated and revised

The global problem of child abuse continues to confound those in the field of child protection. Along with information that has made the first two editions of Child Abuse:Towards a Knowledge Base bestsellers, this volume includes the most up-to-date research available from the United States, Britain, and the European Union to aid professionals in the struggle to protect children from abuse. Stressing the need to view the problem in historical, social, and political contexts, it provides key practice guidelines and initiatives to keep you on the cutting edge in the field.

You'll find a full account of developments in the field since the early 1990s, including:

  • Emerging concerns about the extent and nature of institutional abuse
  • Trends toward more preventive approaches to child protection
  • New research on the consequences of child abuse
  • Recent findings concerning the Internet
  • Important changes in legislation worldwide
