Child abuse, stress and the early years (CASEY) UK

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

This paper outlines a new postpartum continuation of the programme of study focused on child abuse, stress and the early years. The trial will focus on pregnant women abuse survivors who experience symptoms of PTSD. It will further test the emerging evidence base from studies in the US, that completion of a structured listening programme of 10 maternal self study modules can improve perinatal outcomes (mental and physical) and improve the woman’s confidence in her parenting capabilities. The anticipated outcome of the trial is that women will be able to strengthen their protection of their infant in relation to the negative effects of their experience and thus mitigate parent-child transmission of abuse trauma within their own social context.
