Our library just received Child Abuse and Neglect: An Introductory Manual for Professionals and Paraprofessionals, 2006, a great resource from the Department of Public Health and Environment. Its purpose is to educate everyone about the width and depth of the issue of child abuse and neglect. It contains information concerning prevention, definitions (including signs), legal matters, as well as the reporting of child abuse and neglect in Colorado.
A search in our online catalog on child abuse turns up several dozen titles. More recent ones include:
Child Abuse: Information for School Employees, Colorado Department of Education, 2006
Child Abuse and Prevention, Colorado Department of Education, 2004
Preventing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect: Guidance for School Personnel, Colorado Department of Education, 2002
Child Abuse and Neglect Cases in the Colorado Courts 1996-2000: a Reassessment, Colorado Judicial Branch, 2002
In addition, these titles, as well as related ones, can be borrowed in hardcopy from our library.
