Discusses the nature and etiology of physical child abuse and neglect, examines the mechanisms by which child protective and early home visitation services have traditionally operated, and explores best practice principles by providing a detailed description of practices that have been empirically linked with positive outcomes in serviced families. Looks into ways that home visitation may address the problem of family substance abuse in reducing child maltreatment risk, and assesses the role of social networks in child maltreatment. Guterman teaches in the Columbia University School of Social Work. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
