Understanding Child Maltreatment

An Ecological and Developmental Perspective

Maria Scannapieco and Kelli Connell-Carrick

This volume examines the impact of child maltreatment at each stage of a child's development, including infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence. The inclusion of adolescence is critical, as it is a frequently overlooked age in works on child maltreatment. Most books broadly address the developmental consequences of maltreatment, but this book proposes assessment and intervention strategies based on a deep understanding of each stage of a child's development. Both students and professionals in the interdisciplinary field of child maltreatment -social workers, attorneys, child advocates, and researchers -will find this book of interest.
