New Book Exposes The Dark Side of Child Protection Services and Asks “Are You A Victim?”

— Outskirts Press announces the latest highly anticipated self-help book from Milford, CT, author Eric Hundley. —

Dark Side of Child Protection Services


Denver, CO, and Milford, CT — Outskirts Press, Inc. has published The Dark Side of Child Protection Services: “Are You A Victim?” by Eric Hundley.  The author’s most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the self-help category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.  The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/thedarksideofcps was launched simultaneously with the book’s publication.

Those in the child protection services field know that time is a precious commodity, and with a cumbersome work process, heavy caseloads and insurmountable tasks coupled with time constraints, social workers are at huge risk for burnout.  In The Dark Side of Child Protection Services, the author explains how, with his training in industrial and organizational psychology, he was able to devise a system that helps those in the human services field improve performance as well as reduce stress and increase job satisfaction.

Many agencies have processes entrenched in subjectivity, a contributing factor to the dark side of child protection services.  Without a disciplined process, subjectivity tends to support inadequacy and nurture dysfunction, which has a pernicious impact on staff, clients, the case management process and taxpayers.  A subjective work practice is often accompanied by a dysfunctional work environment where employee burnout is a constant threat.  Dysfunction at work impacts all employees in the work setting, and public agency dysfunction impacts everyone—either personally, or monetarily as taxpayers.

The Dark Side of Child Protection Services offers a better alternative.

225 pages in length, The Dark Side of Child Protection Services: Are You A Victim? is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the self-help category.  With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, The Dark Side of Child Protection Services meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $17.95.

Additionally, The Dark Side of Child Protection Services can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.
