Child sex abuse is a minefield of complexity and confusion for all involved. A genuinely multidisciplinary problem, it requires the close co-operation of a wide range of people with different tasks, from the clinical treatment specialists through to the police and legal system. Tilman Furniss, a leading figure in the field of child sexual abuse, has written a unique, practical handbook designed for all professionals involved in the treatment and care of sexually abused children and their families. Based on fifteen years' innovative work, this book will help professionals develop knowledge and skills to deal with their particular task, and at the same time help them to understand the effects of their actions on the work of other professionals.

Elsa Jones, working from the Family Institute in Cardiff, has been treating adult survivors of child sexual and physical abuse for several years, and she has clearly and frankly described her work in this book. She begins be describing the context for working with her clients; then describes the way she has welded systemic thinking and a feminist perspective into a theoretical model she uses to understand the problem and to guide her own work with the survivors. The descriptions of the therapeutic process are, at the same time, profound and simply conveyed. Her work is further clarified by the inclusion of twenty case examples. She shares her own dilemmas about working with adult survivors, and in this way the book offers the reader support for the emotional impact of this work as well as a theoretical framework and suggestions about therapeutic technique.

In Cleveland in 1987 a medical diagnosis of child sexual abuse was made in 127 children, resulting in their removal from home. The consequent intense scrutiny and public criticism around the case, together with the subsequent Butler-Sloss inquiry, resulted in the medical evidence being discredited, giving rise to a system which relies on children to speak out about their abuse. This book argues that this 1987 crisis continues to shape child protection today, resulting in opportunities to protect children being missed. Now re-issued with a substantial new introduction and concluding reflections, this book provides the only account by key professionals directly involved in the Cleveland cases, allowing readers to understand what really took place in Cleveland and why it continues to matter today. It analyses the many failures to address the plight of sexually abused children and makes constructive suggestions for the way forward to provide more effective interventions for children at risk.

This fifth book of a pre-school series of six titles developed in accordance with the government's new foundation guidelines focuses on trips out and real-life adventures - such as trips to the zoo and holidays. It includes making a bottle organ, plants and seed, the jungle at night, looking at pond creatures, making a bee mobile and a (Jewish) Succot shelter. The government guidelines have six core early learning goals which are incorporated into each title in the series: physical development; creative development; personal, social and emotional development; communication, language and literacy; mathematical development and knowledge and understanding of the world. These new goals are not age-related, but attained in stepping stones stages that children aged 3 to 5 can work through at their own pace. Play and Learn incorporates this stepping stone ideology, with Book 1 being the easiest and Book 6 being the hardest. Each book uses colourful artwork and stimulating scenarios.
