Limitations of review findings

The included studies of carer-child interactions were predominantly based on mother-child interactions
 
Although many authors attempted to separate children suffering from neglect from those with mixed neglect and abuse, it is possible that some subjects will have experienced multiple forms of maltreatment
 
The included studies predominantly related to neglect, and there are far fewer studies relating to emotional maltreatment (only two studies addressed emotional maltreatment)
