November/December 2001Vol. 2, No. 6The Cost of Child Maltreatment: Who Pays? We All Do

Franey, K., Geffner, R., and Falconer, R. (Editors). Family Violence and Sexual Assault Institute, San Diego, CA. 2001. 253 pp. $28.00. Paperback.

This book is a collection of articles that examine the varying ways child maltreatment impacts society. Beyond the devastating effects on the individual, there are societal tolls in terms of mental health and medical issues, economic impacts, and societal repercussions. The editors hope that by enlarging the focus from the individual impact of child maltreatment to the societal impact, the attention of a wider audience will be gained and the prevention of child abuse will become a higher priority.
