Since it was first published in 1980, Understanding Abusive Families has been regarded as a classic in the field of child abuse and neglect.

Understanding Abusive Families takes a developmental approach--tracing the change in the dynamics of abuse from infancy through childhood to adolescence--and clearly explains the internal and external pressures that contribute to maltreatment. The authors also explore the interdepAndence of individuals, families, and society and provide a much need ecological perspective on abuse.This comprehensive resource offers cutting-edge information on:** Patterns of incidence and prevalence** The community context of child abuse and the issue of social support** Psychological and sexual maltreatment** Child abuse in foster care and institutional families** Special issues involved in adolescent maltreatmentThe authors caution that to be truly effective, intervention programs must transform the basic cultural, social, and economic attitudes that permit thousands of children to be physically and psychologically harmed.
