Abstract

Emotional maltreatment (or psychological maltreatment, as it is more commonly called in the US) is an inadequately researched and poorly understood concept, despite increasing awareness about the harm it can cause to children’s lives. This review of the literature summarises the evidence about what works to prevent child emotional maltreatment before if occurs and also to prevent its recurrence (i.e. once it has taken place), and focuses on the parents or primary carers of children aged 0-19 years.
