Abuse Defined

Child Abuse and Neglect types and issues are defined here.

Child Abuse and Neglect Defined star
The Federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) defines child abuse and neglect. Learn what constitutes child abuse on the federal level and how states determine criminal and civil statues using CAPTA.

Emotional Abuse Defined star
Emotional abuse leaves no visible marks, but damages the mental health of its victims. People say words cannot hurt us, but anyone who has been emotionally abused would likely disagree.

Incest Defined star
Incest is a sexual relationship between close blood relatives and is illegal in all states. Incestuous relationships are a form of child sexual abuse, and may be classified as rape if the person is under the legal age of consent.

Verbal Abuse Defined star
How do you define verbal abuse? Is it simply name calling or more derogatory, such as demeaning and belittling a child? Would you recognize verbal abuse if you saw it? Learn how to help a child being verbally abused.
