Resumen

ARRUABARRENA, Mª Ignacia. Child psychological maltreatment in the family: definition and severity assessment. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.1, pp.25-44. ISSN 2173-4712.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5093/in2011v20n1a3.

Psychological maltreatment is one of the main and potentially more destructive forms of child maltreatment. It is difficult to identify, assess and treat. Compared to other forms of child maltreatment such as sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect, attention received from researchers, child protection service managers and practitioners has been scarce. A review of available knowledge about psychological maltreatment reveals challenges to define the concept in ways useful to policy makers and practitioners. This paper presents a review of definitions of child psychological maltreatment and several measures available for assessing its severity. The review has been used in the Comunidad Autónoma Vasca (Spain) to develop more specific criteria for the identification and severity assessment of child psychological maltreatment in Spanish children services. This paper develops these criteria.

Palabras clave : definition; child psychological maltreatment; severity.
