Review I recommend Child Maltreatment and consider it a mandatory resource in any medical, social science, or criminal justice library. --Sharon Cooper, MD, FAAP, Chief, Developmental Pediatric Service, Womack Army Medical Center, Fort Bragg NC

From the Publisher The world's best selling encyclopedia of child abuse: VOLUME 1: A Clinical Guide and Reference, and VOLUME 2: A Comprehensive Photographic Reference Identifying Potential Child Abuse are an invaluable resource for all professionals in human and social services, medical and mental health, juvenile and family court, juvenile probation, law enforcement, treatment centers, hospitals, and youth/family service agencies. From sexual abuse to emotional trauma . . . from radiology diagnostics to patient interview formats . . . from making the report to appearing in court, Child Maltreatment goes far beyond any reference work you have to equip you for your role as a mandated reporter in a suspected case of child abuse. Descriptive captions and explicit case histories show you what forensic techniques will help reconstruct an incident and confirm suspected abuse. And while other references give only passing mention to the interview process in sexual abuse cases, you will see how top interviewers delicately separate fact from fantasy. Nearly! 1,000 color photos and x-rays, documented case histories from the files of over 40 leading practitioners in the field, and pages of peer-reviewed commentary and statistical information will give you an understanding only years of clinical work could rival. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. pdf
