Summary

A resource of unparalleled thoroughness, The APSAC Handbook on Child Maltreatment, Second Edition provides critical information for those who dedicate their working lives to alleviating the causes and consequences of child abuse and neglect. Written in engaging but straightforward language and committed to immediate application, this comprehensive handbook covers physical and sexual abuse, all forms of neglect, and psychological maltreatment. Experts in a variety of specialized areas have designed each chapter to inform professionals in mental health, law, medicine, law enforcement, and child protective services of the most current empirical research and literature available as well as strategies for intervention and prevention. The new edition includes a thorough update on existing chapters that are retained; more detailed discussion of parent-child attachment issues and law enforcement aspects; more coverage of special topics such as Munchausen by proxy syndrome, child fatalities, and children's mental health services; more content on interviewing, especially of very young children; and more coverage of community approaches to prevention.
