The first volume of STM Learning’s Child Maltreatment Assessment series focuses on supplying readers with the skills to identify and respond to the physical signs of abuse in children. Featuring several case studies and full-color images, this workbook serves to help professionals in a variety of fields evaluate different types of injuries, better preparing them to accurately differentiate signs of abuse from their mimics. Chapters also discuss topics such as identifying burns and recognizing the symptoms of poisoning.
After reviewing each chapter, readers will have the opportunity to apply their newfound knowledge by completing an assessment at the end of the book. Each volume of Child Maltreatment Assessment includes a comprehensive test section, making this series ideal for both self-study and classroom settings. Additionally, a supplemental photographic atlas at the end of the book will feature 80 high-resolution images depicting abusive injuries, mimics, and more.
