This exceptionally well-researched books intention is to reveal what is really happening in our society and to spur people into action to turn this shameful and complex problem around so that abuse stops and healing can begin. It should be a compulsory handbook for all whose work involves children, especially in the legal system, all human services, schools, preschools, and foster care. It covers all aspects of child abuse and neglect and presents recent case studies of acts of abuse and the ways they have been dealt with in recent times. It is books such as this that get the message out there so that something is done in this supposedly enlightened age.

This book is important reading and a timely reminder that professionals who ignore child abuse something that happens far too often in Australia collude with abusers. It contains comprehensive information for both parents and professionals on how to help children stay safe.
