A clear A-to-Z guide for teens to the facts and myths about abuse, The Truth About Abuse completely covers the issues related to the many different types of abuse. Using straightforward prose, this valuable resource guides readers toward a greater understanding of the topic and provides effective coping strategies for anyone suffering from or close to someone suffering from abuse. Self-tests, Fact Or Fiction? sidebars, and up-to-date statistics encourage readers to think for themselves and discuss this issue both at home and in the classroom. Entries include common types of abuse, child abuse, hazing, school bullying and harassment, and workplace abuse.
