Reviews

`While no single volume can address all the factors involved, this collection provides a foundation for understanding the available literature, an overview of ares insufficiently covered, directions for future research, and mechanisms for assessing extant models of abuse..... it is recommended for practitioners at all levels, and is likely to be a catalyst for additional reading. The book's promotion of a standard of empirically informed, accountable practice is admirable..'
Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health, (March 1999)
`... fine book. If you want a fair description of most of what is, or should be, practiced ... this book is for you. Certainly, graduate courses, seminars, clinical workshops or reading lists in fields related to child maltreatment would benefit greatly from its wealth of cogent information and recommendations.'
Child & Family Behavior Therapy (1999)
