Intrafamilial Child Torture: Victim Impact and Professional Intervention

NEW DATE! October 21, 2022 1pm-3pm EDT


This training will discuss the impact of Intrafamilial Child Torture (ICT) on child survivors, and the comprehensive interventions needed from multiple disciplines, including mental health, child welfare, medical, and spiritual interventions. Exploring the impact of ICT on child survivors, this training turns to the science on severely maltreated children as well as clinical experience treating ICT survivors to identify the sequelae typically seen in these children, particularly psychosocial and psychodevelopmental harms.



During this training, specific psychosocial treatment recommendations will be offered, including evidencebased models that are already in use for severely maltreated children and have been used with the ICT population. Victim impact and needed interventions are also identified for child welfare, medical care, and spiritual/religious care. Spiritual care may be vital when the torture was religiously motivated. A call for research is made to develop a distinct evidence base for interventions with ICT child survivors.


Participants will have access to the newest paperIntrafamilial Child Torture: Victim Impact and Professional Intervention- as well as two new case studies, highlighting the various sequelae and treatment outcomes from actual child survivors. This intermediate-level course is appropriate for child welfare, mental health, medical, and spiritual professionals, including social workers, psychologists, chaplains, medical doctors, nurses, and child welfare attorneys, including Attorney-GALs.
