This classic text proposes that physical and sexual abuse be addressed primarily as public health problems, rather than as criminal justice matters. Public health approaches include emphasizing education and prevention, vigorous casefinding, comprehensive treatment, and quarantining of abusers who have not yet been treated or who fail to respond to treatment. The authors present detailed suggestions for primary prevention with heavy emphasis on effective public education about sexual abuse and enlightened citizen action.
