CORE-INFO: Emotional Neglect and Emotional Abuse in Pre-School Children

This CORE-INFO leaflet summarises what is currently known about children aged less than six years who have been emotionally neglected or emotionally abused. It considers the behaviour that can be observed in these children and in the interactions between them and their parents.

This leaflet forms part of a series of information leaflets on aspects of physical child abuse based on a collaborative piece of work by the NSPCC and the Welsh Child Protection Systematic Review Group (CORE-INFO) at the Department of Child Health, Cardiff University.
