198 pages, 601 images, 9 contributors Skin injuries are among the most common, and, certainly, the most visible, symptoms of physical abuse in children. Because professionals working with children will, at times, encounter such injuries, it is vital they be able to recognize abusive burns, bruises, and other skin injuries in order to differentiate them from accidental injuries and to respond appropriately when encountered. Child Abuse Pocket Atlas Series, Volume 1: Skin Injuries is expertly designed by and for first responders, medical practitioners, and social service professionals who routinely work with children. Any readers who encounter, or may encounter, cases of child abuse in the course of their work will enjoy the benefit of a pocket-sized photographic reference to better inform and support the identification of abusive skin injuries in children.
