Grassroots Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect in Indian Communities: A Guide for the Community Organizer

  • Sale
  • $9.99


This manual focuses on the efforts of people usually outside the formal child protection systems to develop the child abuse prevention network themselves. Based on the experience of child advocates in Indian communities and on NICWA's own efforts, it emphasizes the importance of finding community organizers dedicated to seeing this problem eradicated from their communities. A prevention campaign would not be complete without a discussion of parental substance abuse, the number one contributor to child abuse and neglect, and its effects on a child's sense of security and well-being.
