Munchausen by Proxy and Other Factitious Abuse : Practical and Forensic Investigative Techniques, Hardback Book

Munchausen by Proxy and Other Factitious Abuse : Practical and Forensic Investigative Techniques Hardback

Part of the Practical Aspects of Criminal and Forensic Investigations series

Hardback

Description

This book covers Munchausen and Munchausen by Proxy (MBP) though the terms have recently changed.

The 2013 DSM-V-the update to the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) diagnostic and classification tool-has classified both Munchausen and MBP as "Factitious Systematic Abuse." While thought to have occurred primarily with children and their caregivers, recent research shows a more widespread problem: such medical abuse to spouses, the disabled, the elderly-even pets.

Many involve repeat and long-term instances of hospital and medical fraud.

This book covers the syndrome itself, interviewing and investigative aspects, victimology, as well indicators in the event of homicide and death.
