Research has shown that child abuse and neglect can result in short term and long term physical, psychological and behavioral consequences for children. The extent of the impact varies widely and is affected by multiple factors, such as the child’s age at time of the abuse, type of maltreatment, and frequency and severity of maltreatment. High quality, evidence-based services that focus on building protective factors can increase resilience in children and families in the short term and contribute to improved well-being and positive longer term outcomes for children.
