Presentation Abstract

This literature review examines the effects of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse on social development in children. Over four million cases of child maltreatment are reported annually. The goal of this research is to help educators understand students who may be victims of abuse and their behaviors, and to help counseling psychologists understand as well as implement appropriate interventions for their clients. Understanding the effects of abuse is especially important for psychologists because abuse has lasting effects and early intervention with children could be key to reducing harmful effects.
