Concerns about Research and Prevention Strategies in Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP) Abuse.
Eminson, Mary; Jureidini, Jon
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v27 n4 p413-20 Apr 2003
This article examines three motives for research into Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy child abuse, which are to enhance treatment, to understand the psychopathology of perpetrators, and to find interventions to prevent its occurrence. It argues that only the first justification is valid and proposes that research energy be directed toward understanding somatic presentations that parents make on behalf of their children.
