Book Description

First Published in 1989, Child Abuse and Neglect attempts to focus on the problem of child maltreatment by using a multidisciplinary approach. It presents findings from the fields of psychiatry, psychology, education, sociology, and social work from a broad theoretical perspective. Both micro and macro approaches are stressed in the work, with particular emphasis on social factors related to child abuse and neglect, characteristics of adults and families likely to abuse and neglect and interesting strategies of treatment including family therapy. Professionals actively involved in research and theory building, as well as those who work directly with abused and neglected children will find this book a useful form of reference.
