Systematic Review of Interventions for the Secondary Prevention and Treatment of Emotional Abuse of Children by Primary Carers

Wednesday 19 November, 12.30 - 1.30, S0.98 SHSS Common Room, Social Studies Building

Emotional abuse is an inadequately researched and poorly understood concept, despite increasing awareness about the harm it can cause to children’s lives. Although it unifies and underpins all types of maltreatment it also occurs alone and when it does, tends to elude detection and intervention. There have to date been no systematic reviews of the literature on the secondary prevention and treatment involving the parents or primary carers of emotionally abused children. The objective of the review was to identify studies that evaluate the effectiveness of interventions in the secondary prevention and treatment of child emotional abuse involving the parents or primary carers of children aged 0 – 19 years.

12.30 pm, room S0.98, School of Health and Social Studies, Social Studies Building, University of Warwick
