Cortisol regulation was investigated in a sample of school-aged maltreated (n = 167) and demographically comparable low-income nonmaltreated (n = 204) boys and girls in the context of a day camp research program. The presence of clinical-level internalizing and clinical-level externalizing symptomatology was determined through adult report and child self report. Children who exhibited clinical-level internalizing problems only, clinical-level externalizing problems only, and comorbid clinical… 
Longitudinal associations among child maltreatment, social functioning, and cortisol regulation.
TLDR
Results of this study suggest that maltreated children are more likely to experience difficulties in social functioning, which in turn is related to cortisol regulation 1 year later, which may put children at risk for later psychopathology.
Multidimensional assessment of neuroendocrine and psychopathological profiles in maltreated youth
TLDR
Results show that ELS children exhibited increased psychopathological symptom severity and complexity associated with lower morning cortisol levels, which was not fully reflected in categorical assessments, highlighting the importance of incorporating dimensional assessments and neurobiological factors into psychopathological evaluations of children in out-of-home care.
Child maltreatment and allostatic load: Consequences for physical and mental health in children from low-income families
TLDR
The results support an allostatic load conceptualization of the impact of high environmental stress and child abuse and neglect on child health and behavioral outcomes and have important implications for long-term physical and mental health.
The effects of maltreatment and neuroendocrine regulation on memory performance.
TLDR
Dissociative symptoms were higher in maltreated children; however, high dissociation was related to recognition inaccuracy only among non-maltreated children.
Externalizing and Internalizing Problems: Associations with Family Adversity and Young Children’s Adrenocortical and Autonomic Functioning
TLDR
The importance of considering family context and multiple physiological systems to inform understanding of the development of mental health problems, and their co-occurrence, in early childhood is supported.
Relations Between Emotion Regulation, Parenting, and Psychopathology in Young Maltreated Children in Out of Home Care
Young maltreated children, birth to three years, represent the age group with the highest rates of maltreatment in the United States (ACYF 2007). There are few studies to date that have investigated
The differential impacts of early physical and sexual abuse and internalizing problems on daytime cortisol rhythm in school-aged children.
TLDR
Children experiencing EPA/SA and high depressive or internalizing symptoms uniquely exhibited an attenuated diurnal decrease in cortisol, indicative of neuroendocrine dysregulation.

The impact of subtype, frequency, chronicity, and severity of child maltreatment on social competence and behavior problems
Abstract This investigation examined the impact of dimensions within maltreatment such as the severity, frequency, chronicity, and subtypes of maltreatment and their relationship with child outcome.
Peer relationships and self-esteem among children who have been maltreated.
TLDR
For some groups of maltreated children, having a good friend was associated with improvement over time in self-esteem, and the best predictions of specific aspects of children's adjustment were provided by considering timing, type, and severity of maltreatment.
Reactive aggression among maltreated children: the contributions of attention and emotion dysregulation.
TLDR
Findings suggest that physically abused children were at heightened risk for reactive aggression, and emotion dysregulation, fostered by poor attention modulation, was a mechanism of the effects of maltreatment on reactive aggression.
Resilience among abused and neglected children grown up
TLDR
Results indicate that 22% of abused and neglected individuals meet the criteria for resilience and females were successful across a greater number of domains than males, and implications for the child maltreatment field are discussed.
Depressive characteristics of physically abused children
TLDR
Physically abused and nonabused children were compared on child-completed measures of depression, hopelessness, self-esteem, and locus of control and indicated that abused children evidenced more depressive symptoms, heightened externality, lower self- esteem, and greater hope about the future.

This article applies a developmental-ecological perspective to the question of the etiology of physical child abuse and neglect by organizing the paper around a variety of "contexts of maltreatment."
The determinants of parenting: a process model.
TLDR
A process model of competent parental functioning is offered, based on the assumption that a long-neglected topic of socialization, the determinants of individual differences in parental functioning, is illuminated by research on the etiology of child maltreatment.

Abstract This article reviews evidence from neuropsychological tests that brain dysfunction is a correlate of conduct disorder. Most studies report consistent findings of differential
