The revised third edition of this book is a must for teachers, nurses, social workers, daycare workers, law enforcement agencies, and all other mandated reporters of child abuse. Completely updated, this widely acclaimed practical reference helps mandated reporters fulfill their legal and ethical responsibility to report child abuse with a high level of confidence and effectiveness. Written by experts from multiple disciplines, the text incorporates proven approaches for distinguishing possible abuse from conditions that mimic abuse, conducting necessary interviews and examinations, documenting findings, and making appropriate referrals. The expanded third edition includes new chapters on the role of child protective services, the risk for maltreatment posed by the Internet, the availability of community and home-based services, prevention efforts at the local and national levels, psychological and psychiatric responses to abuse, and resources available to professionals caring for abused children.
