Bibliography on the Battered Child. (Revised Edition).
Two hundred eighty-two articles, books, reports, editorials, theses, dissertations and conference papers published between 1946 and 1969 are listed in this bibliography. Legal, medical, psychiatric, and social aspects of the battered child syndrome are covered by these publications. An additional section includes 19 abstracts of research studies of child neglect and abuse which appeared in various issues of "Research Relating to Children." These studies represent an exploration of many aspects of the problem of the battered child: the incidence of child abuse; the roles of family, community and social worker; child care practices; underlying behavioral factors; legislation and its effectiveness; child protective services and their effectiveness; an epidemiologic study; methods of casework intervention. This bibliography is of potential use to the professional worker or student in the field, as well as to the lay reader. (NH)
