About this book

This book serves as a comprehensive resource for researchers and regulatory bodies working to establish sound evidence bases through research for the care of children and families affected by abuse. Issues such as consent, anonymous research, and how to interface with the legal system in terms of disclosure and sharing of results are discussed in depth. Ethical Issues in Child Abuse Research also provides insights into questions of ethics in animal research, perpetrator and retrospective research, and balances the necessity of collecting this valuable information while protecting vulnerable populations, and respecting their privacy while interacting in a complex legal system. With input from many leaders in child abuse research, this book fills a critical need, providing readers with a pathway to apply these principles of ethics to their own research in this challenging field.

Reviews

“This collection of question‐and‐answer chapters is designed primarily for researchers and review boards. … This book reads more like a policy handbook than a sophisticated consideration of the ethical challenges that researchers face.” (Andrea Thornton, Doody's Book Reviews, November 08, 2019)
