These approaches rest on the opposite visions of the impact maltreatment might have on a child. For instance, Choi and Sikkema (2015) tend to prove the idea that the majority of anxiety disorders result from the trauma a person experienced in the childhood. For this reason, they support the great pernicious impact the maltreatment might have of a common child. However, the cause-effect relationship between the maltreatment and psychosis is complicated and suggests a number of possibilities for speculations. There is the group of scientists who have troubles with the final determination of the maltreatment as the main reason for the appearance of various psychical disorders.

The theory suggests that while we don’t have the non-verbal cues at our disposal that we traditionally rely on to size up one another, make judgements about one another and to exchange information about who we are and how we behave; people adapt to the restrictions of the medium by not only looking for clues in the language that people use as they read messages from other people but they adapt their emotional and interpersonal expressions to the language that they have available. This exchange and accumulation of information takes place more slowly but is of the same quality if not better. In day to day interactions wherein people talk face to face, they tend to make judgments about each other through nonverbal hints, the body language , the tone of their voice with which they talk and the dressing style and outer experiences.
