The Prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences in the General Population of Scottish Children in the first 8 years of life

SCPHRP’s Alexandra Blair attended the Society for Longitudinal and Life Course Studies Conference at the University of Stirling (October 11-13, 2017) to present work by Dr. Louise Marryat and Professor John Frank on the prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in the general population of Scottish children. Theirs is the first study to use longitudinal cohort data to estimate ACE prevalence in Scotland. It was presented as part of a symposium of work using the Growing Up in Scotland (GUS) cohort data, including work by James Law at the University of Newcastle (on language development and parental mental health), Katie Buston at the University of Glasgow (on father-child relationships), and Markus Klein at the University of Strathclyde (on TV consumption and cognitive development).
