Description: The Facts On File Library of Health and Living series is comprised of clear, comprehensive, and up-to-date resources for understanding and coping with the complexities of modern health and social concerns. Written for general readers and professionals alike, each volume contains:
-- An extensive A-to-Z reference section that defines the causes, cures, key research, medical terms, symptoms, treatments, and trends of each field of study
-- Detailed appendixes that provide current statistical information
-- Extensive bibliographies that serve as starting points for further research
-- Comprehensive directories that list organizations, associations, schools, support groups, and publications readers can turn to for further information.

In 1996, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released the findings of the Third National Incidence Study of Child Abuse and Neglect. One million children were victims of substantiated child abuse and neglect in 1995, the most recent year as reported to HHS by state child protection services agencies. According to the National Committee for the Prevention of Child Abuse 1996 Annual Fifty State Survey, reports of child abuse have maintained a steady growth of forty-five percent for the past ten years.

The Encyclopedia of Child Abuse, Second Edition provides an exhaustive overview of this tragic issue. More than 500 A-to-Z entries cover every aspect of the problem -- from psychological concerns to political and legal factors from medical terms to sociological and educational considerations.

The second edition features new and expanded entries on abandonment, adopting abused or neglected children, The Adoption and SafeFamilies Act of 1997, civil commitment laws, family preservation, kinship care, Megan's Law, resilience of abused children, sex offender registration, and teenage pregnancy. Plus, extensive appendixes that provide international statistics and list regional child abuse and neglect resource centers, state child protection agencies, the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, state child abuse statutes, and trends in child abuse funding are also included.
