ABUSE
involves hitting, shaking, throwing, poisoning,
burning or scalding, drowning, suffocating, or
otherwise causing physical harm to a child or
failing to protect a child from that harm.
Physical harm may also be caused when a
parent or carer fabricates the symptoms of, or deliberately induces illness in a child.
persistent emotional maltreatment
of a child such as to cause severe
and persistent adverse effects on the
child’s emotional development. It
may involve conveying to children
that they are worthless or unloved,
inadequate, or valued only insofar as
they meet the needs of another person.
persistent failure to meet a child’s
basic physical and/or psychological
needs, likely to result in the serious
impairment of the child’s health
or development. Neglect may occur
during pregnancy as a result of maternal
substance abuse.
involves forcing or enticing a child or
young person to take part in sexual
activities, whether or
not the child is aware of what is happening.
The activities may involve physical contact
including both penetrative or non-penetrative acts.
They may include non-contact activities, such as
involving children in looking at, or in the
production of, pornographic material or watching
sexual activities, or encouraging children to
behave in sexually inappropriate ways.
