Synopsis

Straight Talk About Child Abuse by Susan Mufson, Rachel Kranz

Specially designed for today's teenagers, this book presents the reader with current information available on the problem of child abuse and gives advice on what to do and how to seek help. Child abuse is generally thought of as something that affects only others, particularly strangers; and most victims of child abuse feel as though they are alone in their suffering, with no one to turn to for help. Straight Talk About Child Abuse explores this widespread problem, presents facts about its symptoms and effects while offering a range of practical solutions and a directory of places to go for help and further advice. The book begins with a discussion of the widespread nature of child abuse and attempts to dispel common myths surrounding the subject. It describes some of the most common signs of abuse and uses composite case histories to show the nature and effects of abuse on those involved. The psychology of abuse victims is then examined to show why some people don't look for help, why it is important to get help and the consequences of seeking help for themselves or someone they know.
