Identification and Intervention in Category A Abuse (Roundtable 5)
Focus in this session is on the failure on the part of strength-based systems to identify and properly stratify risk to young children who have been subjected to the severest forms of child abuse. The presenter reviews clinician methods of identification of young infants and children who have been subjected to inflicted brain or internal organ injury, suffocation, poisoning, drug overdose, and pediatric condition falsification. Examples highlight cases in which the risk to the young infant was based erroneously on factors other than the nature and severity of the physical harm done to the child and the resulting and tragic further outcomes.
