Serin Center

Children with ADHD and anxiety appear to experience more emotional dysregulation than their peers. While they experience the same emotions as individuals their age, they experience them much more frequently and intensely. They may be more likely to get stuck and caught up in their emotion due to difficulties with executive functioning skills and seeing the bigger picture.

Adult Physical, Sexual, or Emotional Abuse

Abuse can be experienced in multiple forms. While physical abuse involves intentional acts to harm another person’s body; other forms of abuse can still cause severe harm and pain without leaving a physical mark.

Sexual abuse takes the form of unwanted sexual advances, touching, assault, or even exploitation.

Emotional abuse may be harder to see but it still may cause psychological harm. This form of abuse is non-physical but is involves intentional acts to control, manipulate, punish, subdue, or isolate an individual through the use of humiliation or fear (Karakurt & Silver, 2013).

Although not all individuals who experience abuse will develop psychological difficulties in the future, adults who experience abuse in childhood are more at risk to develop post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, dissociation disorders, and substance abuse problems (Walsh et al., 2010).

Unfortunately, many adults are the victims of different forms of abuse in their partner relationships and/or at work. If adults were subject to verbal abuse as a child, they may not even be aware that their marriage or intimate partner relationship is abusive. If children are being abused it is not true that “kids are resilient” and will simply “get over it” if the abuse stops at some point.

Any abuse at any age in a person’s life is significant.
