Childhood Denied
Ending the Nightmare of Child Abuse and Neglect



December 2008 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book delves into the reasons for continuous disregard politically, legally, socially of children at risk for abuse and neglect. It examines where we've been and why we're not making more progress and provides ways to finally bring this travesty to an end. It is intended as an aid to child advocates - a way to bring their research and experitse to people who can make huge improvements in the lives of children at risk for abuse and neglect. The approach is one of communicating the issue in ways all people in position to make a difference can understand – hence the authors' orientation toward getting the message out about what they refer to as a culture of "child abuse enabling".
