Session 240: RS159 -> Childhood Victimization and Adolescent Outcomes: Analyses From the Lehigh Longitudinal Study
Time: 11:00AM to 12:30 PM on Thursday, November 14
Place: Sandburg 2
Session Chair: Emiko A. Tajima, University of Washington
The literature has amply documented that childhood victimization is a risk factor for adverse outcomes in adolescence. Children who have been exposed to family violence are more likely to have mental health and behavior problems, including delinquency, substance use, depression, and violence. In this panel session we will report on recent analyses of data from the Lehigh Longitudinal Study. These analyses include the testing of theoretically based hypotheses about the mechanisms that link child maltreatment to outcomes such as violence and victimization in adolescence. This panel also explores the impact of parenting styles and exposure to domestic violence on later outcomes. Through these papers we seek to examine a range of issues related to familoy violence and children's well-being. The Lehigh Longitudinal study began in the 1970's as a prospective study of children and families to examine the correlates and consequences of child maltreatment. Data were collected from ultiple sources at three key developmental points for children (preschool/early childhood, middle childhood/schoolage, and adolescence). The Lehigh Longituduinal Study involves 457 children and their families, some of whom were recruited from child welfare agencies and other community settings. Below we list four papers derived from analyses of these data, along with abstracts for each.
