Product Description

From the Back Cover

This book contains the distillation of fifteen years of the study of child neglect. It seeks to answer a series of interlocking questions: What does neglect typically look like? How widespread a phenomenon is it? What sequelae does it leave on the personalities of the children? How costly are these sequelae for the rest of society? Who are the neglectful parents, and what forces in their lives have damaged their parenting? From what we now know about them, what principles may we infer about the tactics for their treatment, person by person and family by family? And where do we stand with respect to strategies for our large-scale programs?

Polansky is Regent's Professor Emeritus at the University of Georgia School of Social Work, and is recognized as a leading social work researcher and a major contributor to the mental health field.

In recent years David Williams has traveled extensively around Germany and Austria to interview former Luftwaffe pilots and their families in the course of his research into German fighter operations during World War II.

HASH(0x9d80324c) out of 5 stars Outstanding explanation of damaged parents & harm they do Jan. 22 2011
By Maria Conzemius - Published on
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.

HASH(0x9d7fac84) out of 5 stars NOT a self-help book Dec 8 2012
By Gina C. - Published on
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!
