Ashes to Ashes, Families to Dust: False Accusations of Child Abuse: A Roadmap for Survivors

Dean Tong | English, 1996

In 1995 there were over 2 million unfounded reports of child abuse and neglect in America. Has our child “protection” system become itself a kind of family abuse industry? Are legitimate abuse complaints neglected due to a plethora of false accusations? Where would you turn for bona fide help if wrongly accused of child abuse? How would you disprove abuse that never happened in the first place? Can your attorney navigate your case through a web of social agency and courtroom procedures and practices? Ashes To Ashes, Families To Dust will answer these questions and more. False accusations of child abuse debase and demean the innocent adult and create harm for the very children that laws were designed to protect. All social service libraries, social work library schools, and public library systems should have this title available for both those who hope to dedicate themselves to the genuine problems of child abuse, and the equally severe problems of those wrongfully accused of such a despicable practice.
