Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James A. Stockman III, MD (American Board of Pediatrics)
Description: This work represents a comprehensive treatise on the topic of child abuse. This is a new work, a product of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC), which has invited contributors from a variety of backgrounds to prepare an in-depth review of the problem of child maltreatment.
Purpose: The work is intended to be an extension of APSAC's mission and addresses all aspects of the professional response to child abuse and neglect, including prevention, assessment, intervention, and treatment. It covers all aspects of child maltreatment such as emotional neglect and other forms of neglect, psychological treatment, and physical and sexual abuse. The topic is critically important and one that has awaited such an exposure for some time.
Audience: This book will appeal to a diverse audience: social workers, nurses, physicians, medical students, counselors, law enforcement officials, and those in the legal profession. Interested lay people will also find the book informative since, although comprehensive and detailed, it is written in plain language.
Features: The editors were carefully chosen because of their expertise and background. While containing few illustrations, few are required. The volume is extremely up-to-date with appropriate and pertinent references. The table of contents and index allow rapid access to areas of interest. The appearance of the book is one of quality. The overall size and general readability are very conducive to its use as either a reference source or as a work to be read from cover to cover.
Assessment: APSAC, the sponsoring organization behind this book, has been functioning for almost 10 years as a forum for professionals who work in the field of child abuse. This work represents an extension of this mission and serves as a single source where all can come for the latest information related to child maltreatment. The book is not intended to be a theoretical treatise, but rather to have immediate applicability, which it does. It should be on the bookshelves of anyone with a serious interest in the problems faced by infants and children who experience abuse.
