Research implications

There is a need for more large scale comparative studies between neglected or emotionally maltreated adolescents and non-maltreated peers, particularly with regard to risk taking behaviours and school engagement


Studies that explicitly explore the impact of emotional abuse as distinct from other forms of maltreatment would be of benefit


Future studies should use previously validated measures in order to allow for meaningful comparison between studies
