Join us as we talk in depth to two researchers who have led the largest ever, most up-to-date study on the associations between child maltreatment and mental health outcomes.
Published by the University of Cambridge in partnership with the National Children’s Bureau, the study used a best-evidence synthesis research methodology (known as an umbrella review). It analysed 98 quantitative studies from across the world, which in total included more than 11 million children.
During this event, Barry Coughlan and Robbie Duschinsky from the University of Cambridge will present and discuss the research findings, which include:
Chaired by Lisa Harker, Director of Nuffield Family Justice Observatory, with reflections from Senior Family Division Liaison Judge Mr Justice Keehan, the event will include a panel discussion with the researchers, with questions from the audience.
We will explore how the complex needs of young people who have experienced maltreatment might be better addressed in relation to this new evidence. We will cover the implications for social care and mental health policy and practice, including whether children and young people’s needs are being missed or inadequately identified under existing systems and processes, and the benefits of a more transdiagnostic or person-centred approach to organising services.
The event will be of interest to lawyers, judges, Cafcass and Cafcass Cymru officers and social workers.
Questions are welcomed before and during the discussion.
The Nuffield Family Justice Observatory aims to find and fill knowledge gaps, highlight areas where change will have the biggest impact and foster collaboration to make that change happen. Find out more here.
