Child Maltreatment, Third Edition, by Cindy Miller-Perrin and Robin Perrin, is a thoroughly updated new edition of the first textbook for undergraduate students and beginning graduate students in this field. The text is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to child maltreatment by disseminating current knowledge about the various types of violence against children. By helping students understand more fully the etiology, prevalence, treatment, policy issues, and prevention of child maltreatment, the authors hope to further our understanding of how to treat child maltreatment victims and how to prevent future child maltreatment.
The Instructor Teaching Site includes:
- Test bank
- Film and video resources
An eye opener even to the well seasoned practitioner and academic. Disturbing yet hopeful solutions are proffered in realistic and individualistic terms.
Best book I could find for an intro class on child maltreatment. Most of the students like it. I think it's a little too repetitive, but I like the mix of case studies and scholarly research. The research is cites if often very old, though.
Although a good book, I found a book that also contains information about mandated reporting, the CPS process and self-care.
A fabulous book which adds various materials and ideas for students to utilise.
I am still waiting for the inspection copy of this book
Excellent intro textbook on child maltreatment. Very readable and well written for an undergraduate audience; covers a diverse array of topics related to child maltreatment and family violence.
A useful book - good for supporting the students in their general learning regarding child development and support.
Excellent introductory text on the subject.
The text is well organized and written for a Social Work child, abuse, and neglect course. The authors incorporate social theory in defining maltreatment, risk and protective factors, and current evidence and case examples that assist with the application to practice.
