More Description

Through its thorough analysis of organizations that serve children, this important book shows that older maltreated and abused children are particularly vulnerable to the shortcomings of Child-Protective Services, schools, juvenile justice, and mental health systems. In nontechnical language, Maltreatment and the School Age Child provides comprehensive coverage of the best research, policy, and practice for children ages eight to sixteen who have been physically abused or neglected. Filled with case studies, graphs, and tables, this timely book is easily understood and readily applicable by both professionals and lay people. It includes profiles of a neglected child and an abused child along with specific guidelines for upgrading and coordinating services to better help in assisting such troubled youth. Maltreatment and the School-Age Child presents research and findings on the academic, socio-emotional, and functional development of abused or neglected children, along with their family characteristics and backgrounds. In-depth discussions of treatment and policy implications help practitioners, educators, administrators, and policymakers design treatment plans, set priorities and goals, and improve services for these children and their families. Containing an exploration of deep-rooted inadequacies in child service systems, this book proposes remedies to help prepare maltreated children for successful adulthood and parenthood. Teachers, caseworkers, counselors, child advocates, and others involved in helping older abused and neglected children will find this book an extremely valuable and helpful reference. Concerned citizens will find many specific directives for their advocacy and volunteer efforts.
