Chitiyo, Jonathan; Pietrantoni, Zachary
Journal of School Counseling, v17 n18 2019
Child maltreatment continues to be a major health and social welfare problem across the globe. In the United States, millions of children from all socioeconomic backgrounds, across all ages, religions, and cultures are victims of child maltreatment every day and millions more are at risk. Research has consistently shown that exposure to child maltreatment in all its forms negatively affects the current and future educational performance and emotional and psychological well-being of children. The purpose of this paper is to provide a literature synthesis of the impact of child maltreatment on the educational and psychological well-being of students. Recommendations for educators working in school settings are provided.
