Selected for inclusion in Doody's Core Titles in the Health Sciences, 2005 edition (DCT), Munchausen by Proxy: Identification, Intervention, and Case Management is the first book to walk you step-by-step through a suspected MBP maltreatment case from suspicion onward. This skills-based, practical book is generously enhanced with case examples, sample forms, figures, and representative management plans. Munchausen by Proxy (MBP) is a dangerous kind of maltreatment in which a caretaker deliberately and repeatedly 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 child protection--have come together to fill the gap in the libraries of anyone who may become involved with a MBP case. This includes child welfare professionals and staff, law enforcement, school personnel, health care practitioners, judges and lawyers, and social workers.
