Childhood emotional abuse is a prevalent and damaging form of maltreatment that can have profound consequences for a child's cognitive ability and overall development. Studies have consistently shown that children who experience emotional abuse are at a heightened risk of cognitive impairment. These impairments manifest in difficulties with concentration, problem-solving, and information processing. Abuse on an emotional level stunts the development of certain executive processes, including working memory and flexibility of thought, both of which are essential for making sound decisions and effectively regulating one's own behaviour. This paper provides a concise overview of the consequences of childhood emotional abuse, highlighting its impact on cognitive functioning and overall development. In addition, this paper also highlights the crucial role of psychologists in helping emotionally abused children. In this paper, I have also discussed how the consequences of childhood emotional abuse extend beyond cognitive ability and affect the child's overall development. Emotional abuse disrupts emotional regulation, leading to low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. These emotional difficulties further hinder cognitive functioning and impede the child's holistic development.
