Negative online experiences among maltreated children and adolescents

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The aim of this chapter was to examine predictors and consequences of negative online experiences among maltreated children and adolescents. Reviewed studies are multidisciplinary, and involve qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methodologies. The first two sections describe child and adolescent maltreatment, as well as the history of the field. Prevalence rates and negative outcomes associated with child and adolescent maltreatment are described in sections 3 and 4, respectively. A description of children's and adolescents' exposure to negative online experiences are provided in the fifth section. The chapter also explains trauma-focused theory as a mechanism for understanding children's and adolescents' exposure to negative online experiences and risks (section 6). Future directions and recommendations for research (section 7) and practice (section 8) are also provided, followed by a brief conclusion to wrap up the chapter (section 9).
