Emotional abuse is defined as a child abuse that results in impaired psychological growth and development. It is a repeated pattern of damaging interactions between care giver and the child that becomes typical of the relationship and conveys to the child he is unheard or unwanted. Categories are rejecting (refusing to counsel), terrorizing (verbal assault or threat), ignoring (depriving essential interactions), corrupting (stimulating antisocial behavior), verbal assault (abusing or hammering), over pressuring (criticizing age appropriate behaviors as inadequate).
