A comprehensive look at child maltreatment
Understanding Child Abuse and Neglect presents an all-encompassing view of child maltreatment, in its various guises, from symptoms of abuse and neglect to motivations of those who abuse and neglect children, as well as how the social services system intervenes. Upon completing this book, readers will be able to: familiarize themselves with the full range of services for children; understand the effect that various services will have on children and families; and have a sense of what it is like to serve children in various agency settings.

Updated throughout to reflect current research and practices, the 10th Edition prepares future professionals to better intervene and treat at-risk children and families. Topics are presented in a clearer manner with reorganized chapters and a more in-depth look at collaborative intervention and case management. Additional information is included on neuroscience; working with families from diverse cultural backgrounds; sex trafficking; and more.
