Child abuse is not just physical violence directed at a child.

It is any form of maltreatment by an adult, which is violent or threatening to the child. This includes neglect.

When child abuse occurs in the home and the abuser is, for example, the child’s parent or caregiver, this is a form of domestic violence.

Childhood abuse and childhood trauma could have far-reaching effects.
