Previous research has found that parents who were maltreated as children are more likely to abuse and neglect their own children, forming an intergenerational cycle of violence. Other studies have found low socioeconomic status to be a risk factor for the perpetration of child abuse and neglect. Dr. David Zielinski of NIH’s National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) suspected that, if childhood maltreatment affected socioeconomic well-being later in life, it might help explain this cycle. Childhood maltreatment is known to affect both physical and mental health in adulthood. According to a new study, the long-term impacts of child maltreatment also include higher rates of unemployment, poverty and use of social services.
