The interdisciplinary Journal of Emotional Abuse provides a forum for interaction among practitioners, policymakers, and researchers in mental health, social services, law, child development, social and industrial systems, education, child protection, religion, medicine, nursing, and business. Since emotional abuse is only now emerging as a field of concern, part of the function of this journal will be to facilitate a growing understanding in the field. The journal seeks, in each issue, to provide coverage across multiple areas of maltreatment (i.e., in different settings or for different age groups). The editorial board of the Journal of Emotional Abuse (JEA) consists of 50 psychologists, sociologists, criminal justice and social workers, physicians, nurses, attorneys, clinicians, and practitioners who have experience in the diagnosis, treatment, legal intervention, research, or prevention of emotional abuse. As an interdisciplinary journal, JEA will provide professionals from many fields with up-to-date, readily readable information regarding definitions, theories, research, interventions, and policies concerning emotional abuse as it evolves. Authors from the many disciplines concerned with emotional maltreatment are encouraged to submit articles for publication consideration. Examples of topics to be published include, but are not limited to: empirical research of psychological maltreatment, types and effects of emotional maltreatment--humilating and shaming behaviors, theoretical and conceptual models, reviews that have theoretical or practical implications, commentaries and case studies, evaluations of effectiveness of prevention and intervention programs, types of intervention and treatment programs, incidence studies in various settings, accounts of treatment programs for psychological abuse, assessment of dimensions and severity of maltreatment and emotional abuse, descriptions of circumstances of maltreatment and emotional abuse, effects of exposure to family violence or other human aggression, consequences of abuse for victims, characteristics of perpetrators, perpetrating systems, or policies.
