Descriptions The APSAC Handbook on Child Maltreatment

Praise for the First Edition:

`An important contribution to the field of child protection… the editors have aspired to offer an encyclopedic overview of knowledge about child abuse and neglect. The APSAC Handbook will serve as a reference for both practitioners and researchers in the various disciplines involved in investigation, adjudication, prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect. I have already cited several of the chapters in my own writing and I have found the book to be a helpful desk reference. In short, I have no qualms about strongly recommending the book to professionals and graduate students in child maltreatment. Indeed, I have circulated a copy that I purchased to several colleagues who I thought would find it useful′ – Contemporary Psychology

A resource of unparalleled thoroughness, The ASPAC Handbook of Child Maltreatment, Second Edition provides comprehensive, interdisciplinary coverage of the causes, consequences, treatment, and prevention of child abuse and neglect.

The Second Edition includes a thorough update of the original chapters as well as over 630 new references to literature that did not exist when the previous edition was published. It also includes new chapters focusing on:

– Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome
