In this groundbreaking book, Joseph Blase and Jo Blase begin the critical dialogue about abuse by exposing the various manifestations of mistreatment, and offering practical solutions for its prevention and correction. The invaluable information presented is based on findings from the first-of-its-kind study conducted by the authors, in which they interviewed elementary, primary and secondary school teachers from rural, suburban, and urban areas across the United States and Canada.
