Graduate School 27# Fatal Child Abuse

Filed under: Forensics,Teaching — williamthecoroner @ 17:17

No slideshow today. We went over the many ways in which children can be abused or neglected, physically, emotionally, educationally, keeping them from medical care, etc. The three ages where children are most likely to be abused, and finished up with the controversy over shaken impact syndrome.


  1. There are ages kids are more likely to be abused? Why? Peak frustration?

    • The kids learn how to say “NO.” So, in a nutshell, yes.

  2. The times when children are most at risk are times of peak dependency and times of individuation. Neonates, toddlers, and teenagers. Neonates because they are so demanding of time and attention, toddlers because they are learning to say “NO” and be their own individual (the terrible twos, anyone?) and teenagers, because they are separating from the family unit, with strong drives, mood swings, and immature judgement.
