ICT Policy Report & Case Study

The American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children, Center for Child Policy has published a policy paper making the case for intrafamilial child torture (ICT) – torture directed against children by their primary caregivers – as a separate form of child abuse. It is one of a seven-part-series on the topic illustrating how ICT differs from other forms of child maltreatment.

A separate case study of ICT has also been published.

Professionals who regularly have contact with children, such as teachers, school counselors, or clergy, if knowledgeable about the indicators of child torture, may be able to sensitively engage children and help them disclose and provide support during referral and intervention.
