from Child Abuse and No One Heard

comprehensive but concise guide to understanding and confronting child abuse
and neglect, domestic violence, and dating violence. It has concrete advice
for parents and young people on building healthy relationships.
Readers are often deeply moved and motivated by this book. It enjoys a
great popularity with young people and is highly valued by many educators
