Child abuse takes many forms: neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse and emotional abuse. Identification is not always easy, and this is especially the case in an Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department. This book, written by an inter-agency adviser and a child protection specialist, identifies the different forms of abuse and gives clear guidance on what can be done about it.
