Physical maltreatment, neglect and sexual abuse have manifold consequences for the young victims. Depending on subsequent life circumstances, they may develop not only physical problems, but also anxiety disorders, depression, personality disorders, eating disorders, and other problems. A lack of self-esteem, exaggerated aggressiveness and bonding problems can result in long-term psychosocial consequences that may persist into adulthood.
