Early Life Adversity and Child Maltreatment Network Meeting

25 June 2018

On Friday 1st June, a small group got together at Engineer's House to discuss childhood adversity/maltreatment research using cohort data.

The workshop was hosted by Dr Laura Howe at Engineer's House, and was a way to get a small group together to talk about ways of advancing research in the area of children adversity/maltreatment, whilst using cohort data.

The following ways were discussed:

    • Pooling data to give enough statistical power to study rare adversities / interactions between adversities and socioeconomic/other factors

    • Approaches to defining and measuring adversities

    • Pooling data in an ‘accelerated cohort’ design or similar to piece together different parts of the life course from different cohorts
