Description - Munchausen by Proxy by Louisa Lasher
Munchausen By Proxy is the first book to offer a step-by-step guide through a suspected Munchausen By Proxy (MBP) maltreatment case from initial grounds for suspicion onwards. This skills-based, practical book is generously enhanced with case examples, sample forms, diagnostic guidance, figures and representative management plans. MBP is a dangerous kind of maltreatment in which a carer or another authority figure deliberately and repreatedly exaggerates, fabricates and/or induces a health problem or problems in someone under his or her care. Authors Lasher and Sheridan, experts in MBP and social work, have come together to provide this unique and invaluable resource for anyone who may become involved with a MBP case. This includes child welfare professionals and staff, law enforcement, primary and secondary school personnel, health care practitioners, judges and lawyers, and social workers.
