EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS

Understanding the long-term impact of childhood emotional abuse

Background

Experiences of childhood emotional abuse are extremely common, with many affected individuals going on to face long-term health problems, social marginalisation, intergenerational family violence and re-victimisation.

Aim

This project will investigate how different social contexts influence childhood emotional abuse and the interconnected problems flowing from it that often persist over the life course.

Significance

This project will generate new knowledge about the social dimensions of childhood emotional abuse. The findings of this project will increase the evidence base and inform the future development of policy and practice that aims to prevent the intergenerational transmission of violence and abuse, and improve health and social outcomes.
