Blazi, Sherry P., Ed.; Grimes, Linda J., Ed.
This guidebook was designed to help concerned citizens identify and prevent child abuse. The guidebook provides information about the extent of child abuse in the United States generally and within Oklahoma specifically, and stresses that under Oklahoma state law every adult has the responsibility to report suspected abuse. Programs and services for dealing with child abuse, and information about how to prevent child abuse from occurring, are discussed. The guidebook examines the four major types of child abuse, namely, psychological maltreatment, neglect, physical abuse, and sexual abuse. For each of these types, the scope of the problem is outlined, and specific examples, myths and facts, and physical and behavioral indicators are listed. Telephone numbers are provided for reporting child abuse within Oklahoma and for requesting further information about abuse prevention. (MDM)
