    Abstract

    Although it has been suggested that certain family characteristics and experiences may mediate the effects of child abuse and neglect, pertinent research conceptualized from this perspective is limited. In this literature review, the cognitive, social, and emotional outcomes for maltreated children are reviewed, and the literature concerned with a variety of family characteristics that may potentially mediate or compensate for the effects of maltreatment is examined. The inherent developmental perspective in conjunction with a family systems orientation reflects a nursing perspective that can be used to understand and intervene with the multivariate phenomenon.
