Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The objective of this article is to comment on current issues in the relationship between culture and child maltreatment.

METHOD:

A review of the literature on culture and child maltreatment is the basis of the article.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

While attention has been directed to the relationship between culture and maltreatment for more than 20 years, there is a need for further development in this area. Efforts need to be made to "unpack" culture, to promote understanding culture in context, and to enhance research on child maltreatment and culture.
