0 Reviews
It is now commonly recognized that child abuse and neglect can be fully understood only through the use of longitudinal research methods--difficult, expensive, and time-consuming though their application may be. This book reviews the findings from current longitudinal research and also serves as an authoritative guide to the complex methodologic issues involved in conducting such studies.
