  3. Child Abuse and Neglect

    National Child Abuse Prevention Month 2014

    "One of the most prevalent misconceptions about maltreated children is that the abuse will be visible or that a child will talk about the maltreatment. While some children who are the victims of physical abuse do have visible marks, many victims do not. Victims of sexual and psychological abuse oftentimes have no physical symptoms. In addition, many, if not most, victims do not tell about their maltreatment." - Monica McCoy, co-author of Child Abuse and Neglect, 2nd Edition.

    'This book represents a seismic shift in thinking about brain injury and its consequences.' - Skye McDonald

    An injury to the brain can affect virtually any aspect of functioning and, at the deepest level, can alter sense of self or the essential qualities that define who we are. In recent years, there has been a growing body of research investigating changes to self in the context of brain injury. Developments in the cognitive and social neurosciences, psychotherapy and neurorehabilitation have together provided a rich perspective on self and identity reformation after brain injury.
