Abuse or Neglect Through Deliberate
Problem Falsification/Deception

Louisa J. Lasher is an internationally-recognized expert in the identification, intervention, and case management of Munchausen by Proxy (MBP), also known as Factitious Disorder by Proxy (FDP) and other terms/labels that mean the same or similar.

Lasher is not a “hired gun.” She has been providing expert services in this kind of maltreatment since 1993, always seeking the truth of each situation.

A Dangerous Kind of Maltreatment...

People refer to this subject area by many names, and sub-names as depicted below. The overall umbrella term used by Lasher for all of the terms and labels is child or adult maltreatment (abuse or neglect) through deliberate problem falsification/deception - with all of those other terms falling under it

The area of concern includes terms/labels that mean maltreatment to self or to others (children, adults, or animals). For example:

  • Munchausen by Proxy (MBP)
  • Factitious Disorder by Proxy (FDP)
  • Malingering by Proxy
  • Pediatric Condition Falsification (PCF)
  • Medical Child Abuse
  • Fabricated or Induced Illness
  • Factitious Disorder
  • Munchausen Syndrome
  • Other labels that mean the same or similar.

Deliberate tactics to alienate, and/or false accusations, are frequently part of the overall falsification/deception pattern.

Louisa is available to provide training, case consultation, technical assistance, and expert witness services in an objective manner (no partiality to either side) and in the best interest of the child or children involved.

Remember, "Things are not always as they may seem."
