There is finally a single reference source that nudges the field of child abuse beyond diagnosis and into the relatively uncharted territory of treatment of the initial and later consequences of abuse. Robert Reece, MD, director of the Institute for Professional Education at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, chairperson of the Section on Child Abuse and Neglect (American Academy of Pediatrics), and Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at Tufts University School of Medicine, has edited Treatment of Child Abuse: Common Ground for Mental Health, Medical, and Legal Practitioners. This book offers up-to-date and practical information for the primary care practitioner who cares for adults or children and for professionals who specialize in the treatment of child abuse victims.
