Mental health professionals who work with abused and neglected children have long recognized that their clients do not necessarily experience only one form of maltreatment; however, until now there was no single source for researchers and clinicians to refer to about the effects of multiple victimization on children's development. Multiple Victimization of Children: Conceptual, Developmental, Research, and Treatment Issues fills the gap in the literature by bringing together theorists, researchers, and clinicians to present current theoretical models and address research and clinical issues for multiply victimized children and adolescents, with a special focus on the impact of victimization in major domains of development. As the only book to focus specifically on children who experience the co-occurrence of different types of maltreatment, Multiple Victimization of Children ties together developmental and trauma research of the multiple victimization of children and youth and contributes to the thrust to consider maltreatment from a developmental systems perspective. You'll also see how treatment demands differ for those who experience multiple versus single forms of maltreatment. Other things you learn about include: three different conceptual models (risk and resiliency, stress and coping, trauma and post-traumatic reactions) from which to view the co-occurrence of maltreatment singular and multiple victimization literature on young children, school-age children, and adolescents the impact of multiple maltreatment on the ongoing development of children in the cognitive, self, affect, and social domains ritualized abuse and a victim's capacity to change legal, ethical, and research issues Multiple Victimization of Children will save you time, energy, and money by assisting you in planning research and treatment interventions, and in formulating legal, medical, educational, and community strategies for dealing with multiple maltreatment victims. Researchers in the developmental and trauma fields will gain ideas about research directions, protocols for research designs, and insight into problems that have plagued other researchers. Mental health and community agency professionals, as well as attorneys and legal advocates involved in the juvenile justice system also benefit greatly from this book. Finally, upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in psychology, social work, and educational counseling will be able to get an overview of the current child maltreatment information and the unique problems presented by this population of children and families.
