The Gender Centre Library

To borrow from our library you will first need to become a member of the library. To join our library you will need to provide identification (perhaps your driver's license or pension card), and a telephone contact. This information will be reviewed every time you borrow a book.

You will be able to borrow one book at a time, for up to two weeks at a time. This is due to the limited number of books available and the high demand from the community. Please take good care of our books, many of our resources have been removed or taken from our service and not returned. This is very unfortunate as they are part of quite a unique resource in New South Wales

Our books are purchased in limited quantities and appear on our Book List when available. If there is a book you feel the Gender Centre should have in our Library, please let us know.

You may request to submit a Lend Request to Borrow a  Book from our Library from the Catalogue below.

We also have a link to buy the Books on Amazon if you would like to.

You may also consider donating a book to the Centre if you feel it may be a valuable resource to others in our community.

Engaging and culturally sensitive, this guidebook arms education professionals with the knowledge and practical strategies they need to identify and address instances of child maltreatment. This comprehensive resource gives educators a primer on the four major categories of maltreatment -- physical abuse, sexual abuse, psychological abuse, and neglect -- and their effects on behavior, cognition, and classroom performance. Readers will become familiar with laws pertaining to child maltreatment and will discover practical guidelines for teaching students who have been maltreated, identifying and interviewing at-risk children, communicating with families, and reporting maltreatment. For education specialists working with children from kindergarten through high school, this book is an invaluable guide to addressing and helping students overcome this formidable educational barrier.
