Written in a supportive tone, this easy-to-understand book explains what happens when a child discloses abuse and how various systems may respond to the testimony. Finding Your Way is intended to help children understand what abuse is, the steps that are taken to protect a child, the process of prosecuting the abuser, and the child's feelings during the healing process. Intended for children ages 9-18, this is a valuable tool for any professional whose work involves protecting or treating abused children as well as investigating and prosecuting child abuse cases.
