It is an indispensable resource and reference source for anyone who cares aboutchildren and child protection. This book provides the information that we as individuals and as a society should know—and understand—so that child abuse can be combated effectively.
In addition, this book offers extensive, clear, and detailed information about the common connection between child abuse, domestic abuse and domestic violence.
