Review by Dick Watson LCSW Social Worker

“This book is very well written. It is concise yet inclusive. It will have meaning for the professional as well as the lay reader and very much so for the families who have struggled with abuse and neglect. Ricci is a scientist who always looks to the evidence. Even more impressive, he balances the science with the humanity as it is so clear how he cares about victims, survivors, families and other professionals. Child abuse is an issue which demands both emotion and research. Dr Ricci strikes this balance in a manner that will make entering the profession more doable and inviting for future doctors, social worker and psychologists. As such, his book has an impact not only on the current reader, but on generations to come. He has helped the families he has served and he has served the families he will never see. Many thanks to Dr Ricci for his work and his writing “
