Child abuse

  1. 1. Child Abuse Μαρία Κακανδρή
  2. 2. What is Child Abuse? Child abuse is more than bruises or broken bones. While physical abuse is shocking due to the scars it leaves, not all child abuse is as obvious. Ignoring children’s needs, putting them in unsupervised, dangerous situations, or making a child feel worthless or stupid are also child abuse. Regardless of the type of child abuse, the result is serious emotional harm.
  3. 3. Child Abuse… …The four main types of child abuse are: Neglect Physical Sexual Psychological
  4. 4. Physical… •Physical abuse is abuse involving contact intended to cause feelings of intimidation, injury, or other physical suffering or bodily harm.
  5. 5. Neglect… •Child neglect is when the responsible adult fails to provide adequately for various needs, including physical (failure to provide adequate food, clothing, or hygiene), emotional (failure to provide nurturing or affection), educational (failure to enroll a child in school), or medical (failure to medicate the child or take him or her to the doctor).
  6. 6. Sexual… • Child sexual abuse is a form of child abuse in which an adult or older adolescent abuses a child for sexual stimulation. • Effects of child sexual abuse include guilt and self-blame, flashbacks, nightmares, insomnia, fear of things associated with the abuse (including objects, smells, places, doctor's visits, etc.), self-esteem issues, sexual dysfunction, chronic pain, addiction, self-injury, suicidal ideation, somatic complaints, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, other mental illnesses (including borderline personality disorder and dissociative identity disorder, propensity to re-victimization in adulthood, bulimia nervosa, physical injury to the child, among other problems.
  7. 7. Psychological… •Psychological abuse, also referred to as emotional abuse or mental abuse, is a form of abuse characterized by a person subjecting or exposing another to behavior that may result in psychological trauma, including anxiety, chronic depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder.
  8. 8. • • • • • • Never discipline your child when your anger is out of control. Participate in your child’s activities and get to know your child’s friends. Never leave your child unattended, especially in the car. Teach your child the difference between “good touches,” “bad touches” and “confusing touches.” When your child tells you he or she doesn’t want to be with someone, this could be a red flag. Listen to them and believe what they say. Be aware of changes in your child’s behavior or attitude, and inquire into it.
  9. 9. • • • • • Teach your child what to do if you and your child become separated while away from home. Teach your child the correct names of his/her private body parts. Be alert for any talk that reveals premature sexual understanding. Pay attention when someone shows greater than normal interest in your child. Make certain your child’s school or day care center will release him/her only to you or someone you officially designate.
