The Childhood Resilience Study:Building The Evidence To Reduce Health Inequalities Across The Lifecourse

Grant number: 1064061 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017



Children exposed to social adversity, family violence and trauma have higher risks of emotional, developmental and physical health problems. Despite this, many children experiencing social adversity and trauma grow up with positive outcomes. This will be the first international study of resilience in middle childhood. The study will examine factors promoting resilience in Aboriginal children, children exposed to family violence and children in families of refugee background.
