Where Do You Look? Whom Do You Ask? How Do You Know? Information Resources for Child Advocates.
Shur, Janet L.; Smith, Paul V.
The focus of this handbook is on institutional rather than on individual neglect and abuse of children. Specific problems facing children are documented and strategies offered for alleviating those problems at the federal, state, and local levels, as well as in the public and private sectors. A discussion is presented on the United States Census and how census data may be used to glean useful demographic information on children. Information is given on federal and state programs that operate in local communities. A section is devoted to information available on selected child-related topics, such as health, employment, income assistance, social services, Head Start, juvenile justice, welfare services, and child abuse and neglect. Guides to specific sources of information are appended. These include federal and state information centers, publications and statistical references available from government sources. (JD)
