Publisher's Summary

"Child maltreatment can lead to a number of psychological issues, including: depression, substance abuse, anxiety, suicidal tendencies, and even in cases that were not sexually based, a higher risk of sexually-transmitted disease."

Culled from research done over the past four decades, this is an in-depth look at the far-reaching consequences of maltreatment and abuse on children - long into their adult life - and the impact of it on society as a whole. This silent epidemic is a global phenomenon that haunts the edges of communities around the planet, often cloaked in fear and shame, but with devastating consequences on individuals, their communities and the world around them.

To deal with child maltreatment research reveals defining it and understanding how it affects the behavior of the children suffering from it are the first steps in addressing this human crisis. While most people are aware of physical abuse consisting of beating, restraining, choking or causing some kind of physical injury, they may not realize there are just as insidious forms of abuse that have nothing to do with bodily harm. Neglect and psychological abuse can be just as devastating to children and have lifelong negative implications for victims of it.

When you learn how common sexual abuse of children is around the world you will be shocked and horrified. How can such a thing be so common? The research gathered and shared in this child maltreatment guide will be an eye-opener for those in the medical, psychological, and education fields.

In a final grim message, Literature Review of the Effects of Child Maltreatment lays out the harsh reality of the consequences to a society that allows its most innocent members and the future of humanity to be so violently mistreated.
