Preventing Child Maltreatment and Traumas: Examples from Italy and Japan
Drawing from the experiences of Italy and Japan, this book shares successful examples, clinical cases, new effective diagnostic techniques and screening tools, and relevant experiences from a public Children’s Hospital, from a private clinic for abused children, as well as from private psychotherapeutic and paediatrician practices, who are daily committed to early detecting and treating different types of child neglect, abuse and maltreatments. It will be of interest to experienced clinicians, psychotherapists working with children and adults, psychiatrists, and paediatricians. The book will also appeal to academics teaching on doctoral programs in psychotherapy and paediatrics, who have already a basic knowledge of child maltreatments and traumas typologies, and are interested in comparing clinical experiences and learning new tools for early diagnosis and treatments.
