"The goal of every service agency providing care is for people to grow and develop in an atmosphere of trust. However the disturbing statistics regarding abuse of people with disabilities by care providers means that we have a long way to go. This little booklet will give practical advice for what to do when abuse occurs. It also outlines the kinds of abuse that may happen and possible indicators to watch out for. The aim of the book is that everyone gets to be at home, safe." - BOOK JACKET
