The scientific study of child maltreatment and its consequences is in it.

Understanding Child Abuse and Neglect. Sexually abused children, particularly those abused by a family member, may show high levels of dissociation, a process that produces a disturbance in the normally integrative functions of memory and identity (Trickett and Putnam, in press).

In discussing conditions that lead to child abuse, spouse battering, and murder, Berkowitz identifies such risk factors as childhood experiences, frustration, poverty, and personal and social stresses, as well as external events and situations that bring hostile ideas to mind.

Children in violent households are three to nine times more likely to be injured and abused, either directly or while trying to. .Maltreatment suffered during childhood has long-term consequences which risk impacting on parenthood

Children in violent households are three to nine times more likely to be injured and abused, either directly or while trying to protect their parent. Conversely, in 60% of cases where children have been abused the mother will also have been a victim. The impact on children depends on the intensity and frequency of the violence more than their gender or age, but the presenting features are as varied as in adults. Maltreatment suffered during childhood has long-term consequences which risk impacting on parenthood. Supporting victims of violence in childhood as they adapt to parenthood represents a challenge for health professionals working in perinatal services.

The widespread prevalence of child physical abuse, as well .

The widespread prevalence of child physical abuse, as well as the numerous problems and consequences associated with it, has been increasingly recognized since Kempe and his col-leagues first described the symptoms of "the battered child syndrome" (Kempe, Silverman, Steele, Droegemueller, & Silver, 1962). rate of reported physical abuse increased by 58% over its 1980 level, which was most likely a result of increased public recogni-tion of abuse rather than an increase in the actual occurrence of physical abuse (NCCAN, 1988).
