A new resource that helps professionals to spot the signs of neglect and emotional abuse in children aged from five to 14 has been launched by the NSPCC and Cardiff University. The tool covers issues such as children’s behaviour, school performance and their relationships with peers and is based on the latest research. Children who have been victim to neglect or emotional abuse, for example, may present as aggressive and hostile, be prone to angry outbursts, be more likely to experience symptoms of depression, and may have difficulty with friendships. Entitled Core-info: Neglect or emotional abuse in children aged 5-14, the toolkit is free to download. Visit: www.nspcc.org.uk/core-info
