Understanding Child Abuse and Neglect

An infographic, Understanding Child Abuse & Neglect, published by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies provides a visual representation of what constitutes abuse and neglect, the risks, the long-term impacts, and suggested policy and practice initiatives.

Additional information is available in the report, New Directions in Child Abuse and Neglect Research, released September 12, 2013.  The report brief is available here.
