Institutional Abuse brings together a number of different research studies and accounts of institutional abuse from leading academics and researchers. Public enquiries and court cases concerning institutional abuse in a range of settings have generated considerable media interest and have highlighted the need for preventative strategies and appropriate responses. Four areas of abuse are covered: *the abuse of children *the abuse of adults with mental health problems *the abuse of adults with learning difficulties *the abuse of older people. Each section includes a chapter which reports on users' experiences of abuse and their views as to how institutional abuse can be prevented and survivors' needs met.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This edited text introduces thought-provoking perspectives on institutional abuse with vulnerable populations of children and adults in Great Britian. The aim of the book is to develop an understanding of how institutional abuse can be prevented and the ways that survivors of abuse can have their needs met. The text is organized into four areas: (a) institutional abuse of children; (b) institutional abuse of adults with learning difficulties; (c) institutional abuse of adults with mental health problems; and (d) institutional abuse of older people. This text brings together an outstanding array of articles by a talented cadre of authorsthat give clarity to the interface of institutional abuse across the life course for vulnerable individuals."
