Description - Children of Neglect by Margaret Smith

Recent studies by the US Department of Health and Human Services (1996, 1999, 2000, 2002) show that children are almost twice as likely to be neglected by their families as they are to be abused, and that the effects of neglect are at least as devastating as those of abuse. And yet there is a glaring gap in the literature available to social workers, counselors, and therapists, as there have been very few books published that focus on neglect. This book contains a comprehensive review of the current state of child neglect, combining research, theory and practice in order to promote awareness and suggest practical solutions. Included are statistics regarding incidence and lethality, definitional issues, etiological theory, history and current policy, current interventions, and the relationship of child neglect to poverty, substance abuse, and culture.
