Publisher Comments:

This book is an invaluable resource for educators who are concerned about how to recognize and intervene effectively in situations of child abuse and neglect. Educators increasingly are being asked to report and intervene in cases of child maltreatment, but often do not know how to identify or react to situations. The book outlines symptoms, checklists for quick reference, and factors that put children at risk of maltreatment. The book then takes readers through the step-by-step process of reporting abuse and neglect, describes potential outcomes, and discusses assistance to parents and children that can be offered by educators. Dr. Crosson-Tower also describes how schools can create Child Protection Teams to enable all staff to manage abuse and neglect situations more effectively. This book will be essential to novice as well as expert educators who need current and easy to apply information in this difficult area.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 176-180) and index.
