CT298 PRINCIPLES OF SAFEGUARDING AND PROTECTION IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE.
1. Physical abuse: - Physical abuse is any intentional and unwanted contact with you or some thing close to your body. Some times abusive behaviour does not cause pain or even leave a bruise, but it’s still unhealthy.
2. Sexual abuse: - Sexual abuse is any non-consensual sexual contact. Also known as molestation, is forcing undesired sexual behaviour by one person on another. Sexual abuse refers to any action that pressures or coerces someone to do some thing they don’t want to do.
3. Emotional/psychological abuse: - Emotional and psychological abuse includes a range of non-physical controlling behaviour that causes emotional damage and undermines a persons sense of well being.
4. Financial abuse:- Financial abuse can be very subtle telling you what you can and cannot buy or requiring you to share control of your bank accounts
5. Institutional abuse: - Institutional abuse is the mistreatment, abuse or neglect of an adult at risk by a regime or individuals.
6. Self neglect: - Self-neglect is any failure of an adult to take care of him or herself that causes, or is reasonably likely to cause within a short period of time, serious physical, mental or emotional harm or substantial damage to or loss of assets.
