Emotional neglect and emotional abuse in pre-school children (PDF, 340KB)
considers the behaviour that can be observed in these children and in the interactions between them and their parents.
We've produced this leaflet to assist all professionals who work with babies and young children, including health visitors, general practitioners, paediatricians, nursery nurses, pre-school workers and reception teachers, social workers, and infant and child psychiatrists.
This is one of a series of information leaflets on aspects of abuse and neglect based on a collaborative project by the NSPCC and Cardiff Child Protection Systematic Reviews at the Department of Child Health, Cardiff University. For further information visit www.core-info.cardiff.ac.uk.
