Recent studies on addicted babies (addicted mothers’ children who were born dependent by drugs) show how the early exposition to substances may effectively be an early form of maltreatment, able to cause substantial disharmony, both in short and long term, on children’s development. The present paper, through the presentation of a single case, investigates developmental trajectories of a child who was exposed in uterus to substances and other risk factors and who is living in a therapeutic mother-child community with his mother. The study has taken in consideration two steps, at 12 and 24 months, of child’s evolutional and affective-relational competences. Emerged data show an arising evolutional disharmonic profile in the child and symptomatology manifestations that, in a long perspective, seem to be specifically connected to the bio-psycho-social risk condition experienced before childbirth and subsequent family and contextual risk factors.
Keywords: Addicted babies, child maltreatment, drug addicted mothers, early motherchild interactions, mother-child therapeutic communities.
