Synopsis:
According to the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), over 700,000 children are abused in the United States annually. Child maltreatment can create visible welts, bruises, and broken bones, or it can be invisible, producing deep emotional scars and life-long mental health challenges. Children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect can experience alterations in brain chemistry, difficulty with social interaction, physical injuries, and even death. Child Abuse Sourcebook, Fifth Edition provides updated information about child neglect and the physical, emotional, and sexual abuse of children, including facts about severe punishment, abusive head trauma, Munchausen syndrome by proxy, rape, incest, exploitation, medical neglect, educational neglect, bullying, and aggression through technology. The book explains the differences between situations that require legal intervention and those considered to be parental choices, even when controversial. Facts about child protective services and interventions by the court system are also included. Parenting issues that may relate to child abuse risks, including domestic violence, postpartum depression, military service, substance abuse, and disciplinary strategies, are addressed, and information for adult survivors of child abuse is provided. The volume concludes with a glossary, a state-by-state list of contact information for reporting suspected child maltreatment, and a directory of resources for finding additional help and information. This book is divided into parts and chapters. Parts focus on broad areas of interest. Chapters are devoted to single topics within a part.
