Hsieh, Y.P., Shen, A.C., Hwa, H.L., Feng, J.Y., Wei, H.S., Huang, S.C., & Feng, J.Y. (2015, March). Child maltreatment in Taiwan: Prevalence and consequences. Paper will be presented at the 12th Annual Hawaii Training Summit: Preventing, Assessing & Treating Child, Adolescent & Adult Trauma. Honolulu, HI.

Abstract

The main goal of this research project is to establish a large-scale longitudinal database on Taiwanese children to examine the complicated associations between violence exposure in different contexts (family, school and community) and various child developmental outcomes (including physical and psychological health, internet addiction, substance abuse and behavioral problems), in addition to identifying possible risk factors, mediators and moderators of child maltreatment and maladaptation. The goal is to follow the children into young adulthood. Comprehensive assessments of children are scheduled to take place when the children reach the ages 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 20. Moreover, the aims of the current study were to examine the association between parental maltreatment (psychological neglect, physical neglect, physical violence, and sexual violence) and child internet addiction, as well as the mediating effect of PTSD on the association between parental maltreatment and child internet addiction.
