Cycles of Child Maltreatment Summary


Cycles of Child Maltreatment: Facts, Fallacies and Interventions by Ann Buchanan

Focusing on physical abuse, neglect and emotional abuse, this book examines the facts and the fallacies surrounding the intergenerational transmission of child maltreatment. It takes as its central theme that there is not one cycle, but four separate cycles operating both outside (extrafamilial) and within (intrafamilial) the family. The extrafamilial cycles are sociopolitical and cultural, while the intrafamilial cycles are psychological and biological. The first half of the book examines the international literature supporting each of the separate cycles. The second half has a practical focus, highlighting multidisciplinary interventions at international, national, local and individual levels.
