This best-selling text offers a comprehensive look at child maltreatment and incorporates history, case vignettes, and the author's own experience as a child protection worker.

The author covers the history of child welfare, and neglect. In addition, Understanding Child Abuse and Neglect explains case management procedures and focuses on how various professionals become involved in the child protection process and how treatment is undertaken. The text concludes with an overview of functional and dysfunctional families, and contrasts healthy child development with development hampered by abuse sion of prevention and a consideration of the future.

This book is a thorough survey of the area of child abuse and neglect, written by a former protection worker who also teaches extensively in this field. It is “reader friendly” and covers all aspects of child abuse, including physical and sexual abuse and emotional maltreatment.

“I found the Crosson-Tower text to be superior in both breadth and depth of the topics covered. Combined with the positive responses I have received from my students I would not consider using any other text.”- William M. McGuigan, Pennsylvania State University
