Child abuse is a scourge of these times that is
destroying far too many of our young people.
It is estimated that close to 25%
of little girls under the age of 6 are molested.
In 1995, a case of child abuse was
reported in the U.S. every 10 seconds. *
The cost of caring for maltreated
children is $9 billion per year. *
The figures go on and on. Child abuse cases stagger
the imagination with horror stories. Somehow this
pandemic must be stopped.
This book, the only one of its kind to use Body
Language to identify a suspected victim, can save the
lives of countless thousands of children. How? Read it.
Study it. Use it.

years to write this book: studying pedophiles in the
California prisons, working with police, and most of all,
studying child victims. Her degrees include Ed. D. in
