About this book


This revised edition of a successful textbook looks at child abuse from the child's perspective. Offering insights into the experience of abuse and the often conflicting emotions of the children concerned through carefully chosen case examples, it will help managers and practitioners to understand how to respond to abuse and how to help child victims through individual, family and group work. Issues relating to substitute care, prevention and help for adult survivors are also explored.
