What is Child Maltreatment?
Child maltreatment, also known as child abuse, is broadly defined. Child maltreatment takes many forms including physical, emotional, verbal, sexual, neglect, exploitation, and more. When we speak of child maltreatment, we normally first think of physical abuse, but the shocking truth is that neglect is the number one form of child abuse in America.
More children end up in foster care or die from neglect every year, than any other form of childhood maltreatment.
