      <Abstract>Child maltreatment is a widespread phenomenon, with significant consequences on physical and mental health. The most important forms are physical, emotional, sexual abuse and neglect. Emotional abuse includes humiliation, threatening, ridicule, rejection, terrorization, corruption. Neglect refers to the inability of the adult to ensure the development of the child when there are acceptable resources. Emotional neglect involves failure to provide proper care for the child, insufficient parent-child interaction, emotional unavailability, etc. To evaluate exposure to ill-treatment, various tools have been developed. The number of studies and available data varies in different regions of the globe, and in some regions there is relatively little data. In Romania, the prevalence of emotional abuse was 23.6% and emotional neglect 26.3%. Some correlations and consequences are: impaired cognitive development, higher probability of suffering from depression or anxiety at maturity, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder, smoking, drug use, suicide attempts, sexually transmitted diseases and risky sexual behaviors and other. Early adversities contribute to psychopathology through changes in brain structure and function, hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis functioning and other neuroendocrine changes, genetic and epigenetic changes. Raising awareness of the consequences could encourage action to identify high-risk people and to implement interventions that effectively protect children from violence. Some studies estimate that reducing child maltreatment by 10-25% could prevent 31.4-80.3 million cases of depression / anxiety worldwide.</Abstract>
