Product description

Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy describes the deliberate harming of children by their parents or carers in order to gain attention for themselves. The diagnosis of the syndrome has torn many families apart. McGill traces the history of MSBP and examines cases from the U.S. and Canada.He questions whether media exposure has contributed to the growing number of cases and investigates what can be done to protect parents from being falsely accused of harming their children. With more than 18,000 cases of MSBP in the USA and 150,000 visitors to the Mothers Against MSBP Allegations website -- www.msbp.com -- Do No Harm confronts a crucial childcare issue of our time.
