Economic burden of child maltreatment

STM Learning’s all-new reference, Research and Practices in Child Maltreatment Prevention, begins with a broad and comprehensive first volume—Definitions of Abuse and Prevention. This first of two volumes defines in detail various types of child abuse, the history of child abuse prevention, contemporary prevention models, and emergent risk factors for the abuse of children.
