Abstract

[automatically translated] The Childhood Experience of Care and Abuse-CZECH (Bifulco et al. 1994), recently adapted for the Italian population (Giannone, Schimmenti et al. 2011) is considered the gold standard test for the detection of the experiences of care and abuse experienced in ages child and adolescent. It is retrospective semi-structured interview for use with young people and adults, which explores the experiences up to 16 years of age with parents and other significant figures. It is widely recognized in the literature as relational contexts and childhood experiences have a determining role in the structuring of the Self (Bifulco and Moran 1998; Fonagy et al. 2002; Giannone et al. 2010, Stern 1971.1998). These experiences need, therefore, for an accurate assessment. The CZECH central task is to identify specific relational configurations, classified according to agreed criteria, which combine to particular "stories about relationships" peculiar dimensions of experience. The surveys conducted by CZECH are behavioral-oriented, based on the description of specific behaviors and events experienced rather than representations and emotional resonance, thus providing the clinician with accurate and sensitive information on which to carry out the assessment (Bifulco, Moran, 1998). The use of a clinical interview which the CZECH, although they can reach out to specific difficulties of categorization provides, when administered with care, information on the evolutionary history of individuals, highlighting the psychological and psychosocial risk conditions present in the context in which subjects were included and factors that may have assumed a protective role in the development (and Schimmenti Bifulco 2008). This can allow you to make more informed decisions about the clinical treatment, refining (with the aid of empirical data) knowledge of the phenomenon and the elaboration of objectives, strategies and working methods.
