Sexual crime through the Internet poses a major new challenge to everyone working in the child sexual abuse field. This title, edited by Martin C. Calder, a Child Protection Co-ordinator, examines in detail this topic.
Every child has the right to grow up in a caring and safe environment, but unfortunately this does not always happen. This book looks at different kinds of abuse, the debate about smacking, and the problem of child sex abuse.
This book sets out an integrated systems model which utilizes a public health approach and 'whole of society' philosophy for preventing and responding to child sexual abuse. It guides those engaged in policy, practice and planning concerning gender based violence and child abuse towards a more systemic approach to tackling these problems.
This evidence-based book draws on a range of research projects to present what is known about the experience of survivors of violence and abuse; what is known to work in their treatment and care, what is required to protect them and what can be done to stop abusers.
