Child Maltreatment, Third Edition, by Cindy Miller-Perrin and Robin Perrin, is a thoroughly updated new edition of the first textbook for undergraduate students and beginning graduate students in this field. The text is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to child maltreatment by disseminating current knowledge about the various types of violence against children. By helping students understand more fully the etiology, prevalence, treatment, policy issues, and prevention of child maltreatment, the authors hope to further our understanding of how to treat child maltreatment victims and how to prevent future child maltreatment.
The Instructor Teaching Site includes:
- Test bank
- Film and video resources
This is a very informative book that would supplement teaching at level 3. In my opinion I feel that this book would be best geared towards a level 5 student - HNC/D
This is a useful book for anyone that comes into contact with children. It is easy to read with clear definitions of how children can be mistreated.
New instructor - new perspective for the syllabus.
good text book, interesting ideas and easy to read
Very current, topical and detailed. An excellent all round text book
