Research is really important to us, it can help us to understand why people behave in certain ways or which interventions might be helpful for particular populations. We are very grateful to everyone who participates in our research.

Childhood experiences and psychological symptoms – Kate Green
I am looking for English speaking people aged 18 and over to complete an online survey.
The majority of my research is looking at how people’s experiences in childhood affect them as adults. In my practice, I work with people who pose a risk to themselves or other people (or both). When trying to understand this and help to reduce this risk, I often discover that people have experienced neglect or abuse in their childhoods. It is my (subjective) belief that more often than not ‘dangerous’ adults were once vulnerable children. For this reason, in my research I work to understand how different people’s experiences in childhood affect their thoughts, feelings and behaviours as adults. Ultimately, the aim is to contribute to developing interventions to support people who have suffered adversity in childhood.
This study asks about childhood experiences, psychological well-being, substance use and self-harm. Anyone over the 18 can complete it, and I would really like to get as broad a sample as possible. Please be aware the questions do ask about sensitive topics though.
