This book explores various aspects of violence and the attendant emotional, psychological, biological and social features that may be found to accompany these states in children. It highlights the importance of prevention and early intervention and the implicit use of therapy to help children who are in these vulnerable and dangerous states of mind and body. Interdisciplinary research is also advocated as a research tool to help us to obtain as complete an understanding as possible of violence and it's vicissitudes in children. Because violence may have many antecedents and consequences in the mind, the provision of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is a very useful and elucidative method to use as a form of intervention.
