This articulate overview of child neglect and emotional abuse highlights the seriousness of these fundamental, but sometimes underestimated, types of child maltreatment. The book examines theory, empirical research, case studies and practical applications, providing a comprehensive guide for any reader who is serious about studying this crucial topic.
This is an important and timely book, drawing our attention to how developments in theory and research in relation to children's experiences of neglect and emotional abuse inform our present understanding of the issues and consequently change our practices. This text will be of benefit to a wide range of students and professionals, across disciplines, who are concerned with gaining a deeper understanding of the complex causation and profound effects of the experience of neglect and emotional abuse.
The authors’ wish is that the book is essential reading for professionals working with vulnerable children, and I believe that it achieves this target...

In society today areas of safeguarding and protection are detrimental to a child’s well-being; however with this said the subject of emotional abuse which has a life changing effects can be and sometimes is not given the recognition is clearly deserves. Yet Doyle and Timms have clearly identified and discussed such issues in this book which would raise awareness and give a deeper understanding to the subject , so I am of the opinion this text will be invaluable to any practitioner or student in the field of safeguarding and protection.
This is an excellent text, the impact of Neglect & Emotional abuse on the child is often under estimated and research is currently being undertaken to evidence the long term impact on the child. I therefore believe this is a valuable text to raise awareness and helping professionals work together to improve outcomes for these group of children.
This book is an important text in the exploration of two areas of child abuse that are complex and long-lasting for many children, and challenge many practitioners working in the field of safeguarding children.
This is an excellent text that covers all the areas we need to cover on the qualifying social work programme.
Useful resource for those studying child development and assessing a child`s needs
I would recommend this book for both undergraduates and post graduates as a most accessible and informative book to date on this subject area. I particularly like the chapter 2 and 3 as the two assist in understanding and responding and provides the reader with food for thought to dealing with cases in practice.
I feel this book is one of those books that a practitioner will utilise in their every day practice.
