About the Author

JAMES GARBARINO is a professor at Cornell University, a world-renowned expert of child-abuse prevention, and a prolific author. He lives in Ithaca, New York.


"This well-written, comprehensive, often wise book should become a standard, well-thumbed reference for all adults who wish to increase their competency in communicating with children. Its wisdom is that while it consistently offers practical advice, it never offer simplistic solutions to the very complicated task of getting accurate information from children." --Children and Youth Services Review
