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
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.
