Editorial: Navigating the science‐practice gap in child maltreatment
Charles H. Zeanah
This issue of the Journal provides an extraordinarily rich array of timely and important investigations on topics ranging from psychotic symptoms in adolescents to several types of neurodevelopmental disorders to brain structure in young children with sleep disturbances. Papers feature longitudinal studies, a meta‐analysis, and intervention research, including follow‐up of a randomized clinical trial. Remarkably, these studies involve tens of thousands of children and adolescents residing on four continents. The longitudinal studies are especially noteworthy for their large cohorts and systematic assessments.
