Child Abuse and Neglect: The School's Response (Guilford Communication Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

School professionals have a unique opportunity--and responsibility--to identify and respond to child abuse and neglect. This book provides a succinct review of current knowledge on child maltreatment and links it specifically to practical applications in the schools. Information and strategies are outlined to help school practitioners and other personnel identify signs of abuse, respond sensitively and effectively to student disclosures, and make critically important reporting decisions. Treatment options are discussed in depth, including guidelines for offering school-based clinical services and/or making referrals to outside providers. Other topics covered include consulting with teachers and parents, planning and implementing victimization prevention programs, and coping with "compassion fatigue." The book is illustrated throughout with clearly written, relevant case examples. Special features include reproducible overhead transparency masters for use in in-service training.
