Innovative Methodological and Statistical Approaches to the Study of Child Maltreatment
OCTOBER 22, 10:00 a.m. MDT
The construct of maltreatment is complex yet highly important as we advance our understanding of adverse life experiences in childhood. A recent special issue of Child Abuse & Neglect explored the current state of the science on measurement of maltreatment as well as innovative statistical methods that can be applied to improve our approach to measurement. Join co-editor Joy Gabrielli, PhD, a clinical psychologist and assistant professor at the University of Florida, as she provides a broad overview of findings from the special issue, limitations in our current approaches, and recommendations for future research in this area.
