Volume Three: Cultures at Risk and Role of Professionals

There are many questions that arise when examining the cultures at risk for maltreatment. Does child maltreatment victimisation lead to child maltreatment perpetration in adulthood? What roles do non-medical professionals play in the identification and treatment of child maltreatment victims? Are child maltreatment victims more likely to become victims of (or be perpetrators of) intimate partner violence?

Volume Three in the fourth edition of Chadwick's Child Maltreatment features 24 chapters of clinical text based on relevant topics ranging from the risks of the Internet and family abduction to the roles of physicians, nurses, social workers, and multidisciplinary teams. There are also 9 chapters focused on the legal and forensic aspects of child maltreatment cases.

More than 40 experts have collaborated to provide the latest clinical data, research and case studies in Cultures at Risk and Roles of Professionals, making it one of the most comprehensive child maltreatment resources available for interdisciplinary audiences.

The clinical portion of the text is accompanied by a photographic atlas in the back of the book, which includes more than 450 images and case histories on key topics, including police investigations, resources and settings, and prevention.

Peer-reviewed by experts in the field, Cultures at Risk and Role of Professionals is a comprehensive resource to support health care, law enforcement, social work, child protection, and court-related professionals in their ongoing efforts to identify cultures at risk for maltreatment and support other professionals in the field.
