The incorporation of standard psychiatric and developmental research paradigms into the field of child maltreatment has greatly improved understandings of the sequelae of child abuse, with important implications for intervention. Research shows that there is considerable heterogeneity in outcome of maltreated children and highlights that it is unlikely that any one particular therapy will be appropriate or effective for all victims.
