Turning Points: Breaking Intergenerational Cycles Of Intimate Partner Abuse And Social Adversity

Grant number: 1048829 | Funding period: 2013 - 2017



Intimate partner abuse (IPA) is estimated to affect one in four women at some stage in their lives, and to impact on the lives of at least one million Australian children annually. This study will investigate the extent to which exposure to intimate partner abuse during pregnancy and in the first 12 months postpartum predicts child outcomes in middle childhood. The study will provide foundations for better targeting and tailoring of early intervention strategies to support children at risk of adverse outcomes.
