childhood experiences, psychological symptoms and behaviour

07 December 2018

I am carrying out some research on people’s early experiences, psychological symptoms, self-harm and aggression. The aim of this study is to understand more about the way people’s early experiences affect their experiences of psychological symptoms and behaviour in adult life. By understanding these things, we hope to find better ways to help people who may have suffered adversity in childhood.


Ethical approval

This study was approved by the university of Nottingham's Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Research Ethics Committee. Ref number: 129-1808
