Maltreatment and the School-Age Child presents research and findings on the academic, socio-emotional, and functional development of abused or neglected children, along with their family characteristics and backgrounds. In-depth discussions of treatment and policy implications help practitioners, educators, administrators, and policymakers design treatment plans, set priorities and goals, and improve services for these children and their families. Containing an exploration of deep-rooted inadequacies in child service systems, this book proposes remedies to help prepare maltreated children for successful adulthood and parenthood.
