Format: Paperback
This book is "must" reading for anyone who has children or who is working with children. Written in a clear, concise style, the book is an easy reference to determining IF you are seeing child abuse symptoms, and HOW to deal with the situation if child abuse is present. Written by an M.D., the author is well qualified to show examples of "abuse" wounds versus regular scrapes and bruises a child would suffer. There are excellent drawings to illustrate those areas of the body which would show physical or sexual abuse. Not only is this an excellent reference for detecting abuse, this book gives the reader good advice on how to deal with the situation, who to contact, how to verify what you are suspecting, etc. I found this book to be the best reference document yet on understanding this most sensitive subject.
