The effects of childhood abuse on development from infancy through adulthood have been studied for many years. Professionals in the field of psychology and counseling have taken a strong interest in how adversity (e.g., abuse) affects developmental progression through Erikson’s psychosocial stages; as often times, this abuse will hinder the development of the child as he or she matures into adulthood. Throughout this paper, the impact of childhood abuse specifically as it pertains to the development of mental health issues and chemical health will be examined.
