~ Child Physical Abuse
~ Child Sexual Abuse

My interests include recognition of risk factors for child abuse and prevention through education of health care providers and families.

I am also interested in assessment and treatment of mental health conditions as part of child abuse evaluation and treatment. Child abuse is a complex, multi-dimensional problem that affects the entire family. It is my hope that providing mental health services may help break the cycle of abuse.

I am also interested in the improving the team approach to child abuse-both the medical team within the hospital and multidisciplinary team of other agencies. By working together we can provide more accurate and complete evaluations as well as much better services for children and families.


Dr. Lenane is not actively doing research at this time. Her areas of research interest include:
-Identification of child abuse in the emergency and outpatient settings
-Prevention of child abuse
-Burn out- recognition and prevention and team building, particularly as a way to prevent burn out
-Mental health needs of children and families victimized by abuse
-Reduction of corporal punishment
