Event Title

Motives of Child Torture and the Parent Rationale

Date

April 2020

Description

Parent etiology plays a significant role in the specific techniques of raising a child effectively. Statistically, the child of a parent or caretaker who suffers from a mental disorder are twice as likely to experience abuse or neglect. Consequently, parents or caretakers with comorbid mental disorders double the likelihood of abuse. In theory, occasional uncontrollable anger and lack of self-control can often lead to child abuse by a parent or caretaker; however, the more extreme cases tend to contrast with episodic outbursts, since child torture cases tend to be prolonged, deliberate and designed to establish control over the victim. Therefore, this research will explore the possible motives by which child torture may take place and the parent or caretaker rationale that fuels it.
