Childhood Denied by Kathleen Kelley Reardon

Book Description

This book delves into the reasons for continuous disregard politically, legally, socially of children at risk for abuse and neglect. It examines where we've been and why we're not making more progress and provides ways to finally bring this travesty to an end. It is intended as an aid to child advocates - a way to bring their research and expertise to people who can make huge improvements in the lives of children at risk for abuse and neglect. The approach is one of communicating the issue in ways all people in position to make a difference can understand - hence the authors' orientation toward getting the message out about what they refer to as a culture of 'child abuse enabling'.
