About the review
This systematic review evaluates the scientific literature on parent-child interaction published up until November 2014.
It aims to answer the following clinical question:
- What are the features of parent-child interactions amongst neglected and/or emotionally abused children aged 0-14 years?
Neglect is the most common form of child abuse, but frequently goes unrecognised.
This review studies the effects of poor parent-child interactions by looking at the features of neglect in the following age groups; 0-7 months, 18 months-3 years, 4-5 years and 6-14 years.
The implications for practice and research, and other useful references are included in the review.
