'...a valuable resource book for teachers, child care workers and school administrators on preventing, identifying and handling cases of child abuse and neglect...[It includes] a unique international perspective on child protection.' Associate Professor Sandy K Wurtele, University of Colorado 'Many books stop at the what should be done, but this book goes beyond that to tell us the how. It is sound, practical and most welcomed.' Wilma Bartlett, The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, UK Teachers and early childhood workers are the only professionals in contact with abused children for long periods of time. Although they are seldom aware of their importance, they can provide the child's best defence against abuse. Abused children exhibit identifiable behaviours and perform less well in school than their peers. Educators and caregivers can learn to observe children's development and respond to their special needs. Schools have always taken responsibility for teaching children to stay safe from traffic, fire, water and electricity. They are also in the best position for teaching children to stay safe with people.Child Protection is a comprehensive guide to the common forms of child abuse and neglect. It offers practical help for the identification of child abuse and neglect and the support of the child victims and, in particular, the provision of curriculum for child protection. Freda Briggs, formerly a teacher and social worker is Professor Child Development at the University of South Australia. She is also the author of From Victim To Offender, Why My Child?, Developing Personal Safety Skills In Children With Disabilities, Keep Children Safe and Child Sexual Abuse: Confronting The Problem. Russell Hawkins is a psychologist in private practice and a senior lecturer in Psychology at the University of South Australia.
