    Abstract

    Cognitive functioning and behavioral and emotional adjustment were examined in children who were previously maltreated as preschoolers, had received intervention in a developmentally salient day treatment program, and were either placed in adoptive families or returned to the biological family system. The children were evaluated, on average, four years postintervention. The children in this sample were as emotionally maladjusted as those in a clinical population; they experienced more anxiety and aggression. Additionally, they fared worse than clinical (and nonclinical) norms in terms of self-confidence and the adaptive ability to perceive support from others, and were comparable to the clinical group in their limited ability to reach out to others in the face of problem-resolution skills below a nonclinical level.
