Medical child abuse occurs when a child receives unnecessary and potentially harmful medical care at the instigation of a caretaker. Written and edited by leading experts on child abuse, "Medical Child Abuse: Beyond Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy" makes the case that the term Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy should be retired permanently, and replaced with a commonsense appreciation that children can be abused by their parents in the medical environment. Physicians who find themselves giving unnecessary and harmful medical care can see the abuse for what it is - another way parents can harm children. The new resource offers the first detailed, and comprehensive description of treatment for this form of child maltreatment.
In An Introduction to Statistics: An Active Learning Approach, second edition, Kieth Carlson and Jennifer Winquist encourage an active approach to learning statistics. While the chapters in this book introduce basic and key concepts, this book is unique in the depth of its active pedagogical approach. Carefully placed reading questions throughout each chapter reinforce difficult concepts and guide student learning; 29 in-depth activities, each accompanied by learning objectives, carefully developed scenarios, problem sets, and quiz questions give students the opportunity to test or demonstrate their understanding of basic concepts while they read detailed explanations of more complex statistical concepts; and 15 sets of practice problems further solidify student learning.
