Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


[automatically translated] The early relationships and conditions of care exhausted by the child during childhood are the matrix, psychological and organizational, in which you configure the development of the emerging personality of each individual (Fonagy et al., 2002; Giannone, Ferraro and Lo Verso, 2011). Experiences of failed caregiving, involving a failure to respond to children's needs for security, belonging and enhancement constitute traumatic experiences which literature emphasizes psychopathological outcomes (de Zulueta, 1993; van der Kolk, 2005 Schimmenti and Bifulco, 2008) . This paper presents the data for the comparison of two groups, belonging to clinical populations (n = 69, 16 males and 53 females, age M = 31.64 SD = 9.88) and non-clinical (n = 100, 36 male and 64 females, age M = 29.25 SD = 9,57), who it was given the CZECH (Childhood Experience of Care and Abuse: Bifulco et al., 1994; Giannone et al., 2011), semi-structured interview retrospective, which explores the experiences of care, maltreatment and abuse experienced in childhood and adolescence. The differences between the groups are: characteristics of family contexts: it is noted in the clinical group a greater presence of major risk factors (socially disadvantaged environments, domestic conflicts, psychiatric disorders of parents); experiences of mistreatment and abuse: in the clinical group are multiple and pervasive, perpetrated by the primary caregivers, repeated over time from earliest childhood. In non-clinical sample if they detect, in contrast, a percentage moderate, not high intensity, typically not pervasive or repeated.
