1.1 Describe the causes and effects of complex disabilities and conditions. Mental health issues ranging from the doubts and uncertainties have become a part of daily routine, towards serious long term situation which can be very complex for managing and having a diversifying impact on the overall live of the people. The usual child health leads to contribute towards overall development (Watson & Le Couteur, 2011). Therefore it is important to take special care of people with complex disability as they turn out to be sensitive enough about the situation and environment they are living in.
Research conducted on child maltreatment give enough knowledge and understanding which can benefits sufferers of ill-treatment, or neglect, etc. Such victims also need to be given equal attention just as burn victims, sufferers of infections or genetic diseases, etc. Such victims are also socially dormant or lack self-confidence. They are also not active politically. Thus, they are unable to make a stand for their rights, to make demands for themselves and thus they lack attention from American research
Externalizing problems are disobeying rules, physical aggression, and threatening others. As a result of constant interparental violence, a child's coping ability may be, depleted, which, can result in physiological problems(Kelley 1025) And over time, the more these children are exposed to this violence, their ability to regulate feelings of, fear and worry, is weakened causing them to be, more vulnerable to internalizing problems. However, the children who are better able to maintain these feelings are more likely to experience internalizing problems(Kelley 1026). Witnessing parental violence affects a child's
Child maltreatment has been extensively studied in the past decades and it has shown to cause significant risks for both psychological and biological development. Although these risks arise during childhood, they often initiate a negative developmental cascade that continues throughout the life span . Because of the pervasive effect child maltreatment promotes, research in this field has a critical role in both exploring which developmental processes child maltreatment influences and for improving the quality of clinical, legal and policy-making decisions for maltreated children . Research in child maltreatment, however, has also the role of informing how to develop interventions which meet the specific psychological needs of maltreated children
Infant abuse is more common than people think it to be. People should care because this is a serious situation and if we care then we can help the infants who were at one point abused by an adult and give them the right help they deserve. If an infant is abused by an adult they know, how will that experience affect them as they grow older? If an infant is abused by an adult they know, that experience can affect their mental illness as they grow older.
Later in life, the infant may become hypervigilant (always on the alert) or (emotionally flat) never happy, sad or angry (Berger, 2011). When stress is being prolonged in young children, it can stop or slow down brain development. Many young children have their frontal lobes not fully developed, this makes it difficult for their brain to respond rationally to stress. The comfort and reassurance of safety by the caregivers can help young children handle stress and stay
Everyone, at some point, has experienced emotional trauma or turmoil so it is difficult for some to see it as a way of abusing that is really out or the ordinary or worth recognition. CLOSING/TRANSITION SENTENCE… To identify their effects on a child it is important to first analyze the types of abuse. Emotional abuse, neglect, and domestic violence are the few main types. A
Parental conflict in the home is one major issue that can attract external attention and warrant external intervention from the Department of Children and Family Services. Parental disagreements can put children at risk for neglect and the
As a child protective advocate, I realize that verbal abuse requires immediate intervention, and possible removal from the family as well. The Child Abuse & Neglect Manual is very thorough, and discusses parenting coping skills at length. According to DePanfilis (2006), many parents themselves do not have cognitive insight about their behavior and/or the normal developmental phases of childhood (DePanfilis, 2006, p. 47). This manual will be a great resource for practice, as it identifies many variables of emotional, verbal, and physical abuse.
Trauma is a strong emotional response to a distressing event or circumstance. Trauma can overwhelm a person’s ability to cope and cause feelings of helplessness, fear, and/or horror. Traumatic events can include domestic violence, abuse, community violence, motor vehicle accidents, war experiences, terrorist acts, natural disasters, and human-made disasters. When faced with trauma, most children and adolescents are resilient and are able to return to their prior levels of functioning after a certain period of time and resume a normal developmental course. However, some children who experience trauma develop severe acute or continuous symptoms that interfere with their daily functioning and warrant clinical intervention.

When the word “domestic abuse” is put forward, people may think it is far from their lives. However, it happens around each individual and it is closer than they think. Domestic abuse often escalates from threats and verbal abuse to violence. And while physical injury may be the most obvious danger, the emotional and psychological consequences of domestic abuse are also severe. (Smith and Segal 2)
