Multidisciplinary Investigation of Child Maltreatment is written for professionals in criminal justice, law, social work, psychology, medicine, and human services, as well as for students in undergraduate and graduate courses in these fields. Specifically, it is an ideal primary textbook for child abuse and neglect courses and can be a valuable supplement for investigation and victimology courses. The available textbooks on the market only partially cover the type of information needed for understanding maltreatment in American society and for conducting child abuse investigations. This comprehensive textbook addresses both normative and non-normative development in infants, children, and adolescents, as well as appropriate ways for child protective services and criminal justice professionals to investigate and, when founded, prosecute perpetrators of maltreatment. Through presentation of analogies, examples, court cases, and illustrations, this definitive textbook effectively guides readers using a best practices approach to evaluating alleged neglect and maltreatment cases.
