This chapter considers what may be considered the most significant risk factor in a child welfare population: the experience of maltreatment. Historically, the variation among definitions of maltreatment has proved to be a substantial methodological weakness in child welfare research; any examination of sequalae of maltreatment necessarily hinges on how maltreatment is captured and described. The chapter uses multiple sources in NSCAW to determine children's maltreatment experiences, including adolescents' self-reports of their own experiences. It advances the definitions and analysis of maltreatment and its consequences. In addition, it offers new information about the relationship between maltreatment and socioemotional outcomes in adolescents.
