Child Abuse and Neglect

Child abuse is the physical or psychological/emotional mistreatment of children. Child abuse can be defined as any act or series of acts of commission or omission by a parent or other caregiver that results in harm, potential for harm, or threat of harm to a child.  Most child abuse occurs in a child’s home, with a smaller amount occurring in the organizations, schools or communities the child interacts with.  There are four major categories of child abuse: neglect, physical abuse, psychological/emotional abuse, and sexual abuse.
