The third edition of this best-selling handbook covers all aspects of child maltreatment, including physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. The third edition will undergo a major overhaul by reorganizing the content categories according to each form of abuse. The previous two editions divided up the content by psychological, pychosocial, medical and legal aspects of abuse. Through the review process we learned that many reviews would prefer the organization to be grouped by each form of neglect (physical, sexual, emotional) rather than by the corresponding aspects. In addition, the third edition will have new and updated chapters, including the history of child protection, prevention, reporting, foster care and adoption, the criminal justice system, cultural competence and interviewing. The entire book will have a focus on evidence based practices which will be discussed in all parts. In addition, each part will contain a similar structure covering definitions, legal aspects, interventions and treatment. This edition is poised to be the most successful edition yet and will include contributions for THE leading experts in each corresponding area.
