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.
