Child Abuse and Neglect: The Responsibilities of Educators.
Manchak, Rosann K.
This annotated bibliography of resources about child abuse and neglect begins with an introduction to the problem and causes of child abuse, legal definitions of abuse and neglect, and statistics illustrating the incidence of abuse. Designed to serve as an informational resource for educators, these resources are classified by categories pertaining to definition, recognition, reporting procedures and policies, treatment of victims, rehabilitation of perpetrators, and prevention. The references are arranged alphabetically by author within each category. Additionally, the responsibilities of educators dealing with child abuse and neglect are outlined in the bibliography as well as suggestions directed toward teachers, administrators, counselors, and school health personnel. The appendix contains an interview with a social worker who handles child abuse and neglect cases, and focuses on the role and responsibility of school personnel in reporting suspected child abuse and neglect.
