Book Description

Aug. 15 1983 Anatomy of Child Neglect
"Most of us are unaware of child neglect even when we are witnessing it. . . . Neglect is a matter of things undone, of inaction compounded by indifference. Since it goes on at home, it is a very private sin. . . . It is little wonder that most of the public is unaware of poor child caring. Its ignorance is even greater as to how widespread the problem is. But this is not a blissful ignorance. The public may not want to attend to child neglect, but it lives with the distortions of human personality that are left in its wake."—from chapter 1 of Damaged Parents

"Norman Polansky and his colleagues have produced a truly remarkable book. . . . One of the consequences of [the] relative invisibility of child neglect is that we also know less about it. But this book will help to correct that for it contains reports of findings from two systematic efforts to define, measure, classify, and understand child neglect."—Thomas M. Young, Social Service Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding explanation of damaged parents & harm they do Jan. 22 2011
By Maria Conzemius - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the best book on damaged parents and the damage they do that I've ever read, and I have a master's degree in social work. This book is not afraid to talk about character and character defects. I appreciated the honesty. No lying and no bureaucratese.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT a self-help book Dec 8 2012
By Gina C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The authors of this book obviously wrote it for other like-minded professionals (and those seeking to make psycholgy their profession). It's nowhere near readable as a self-help book. Unless you're a psycholgist-in-training, don't waste your time or money with this one. If you're going to look at it from an academic standpoint, then this is the book for you!
