This webinar gives an overview of the data available on care and research opportunities in the four internationally-renowned cohort studies run by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS). It is also an opportunity to hear about the new, unique population-level research by Dr Sam Parsons on the intergenerational transmission of disadvantage and resilience among care leavers and their children.
You can view a PDF of the event slides here.
This webinar is aimed at anyone interested in care, including measures of out-of-home care, social service contact, caring responsibilities and social care.
Dr Sam Parsons will then demonstrate the potential of this data by presenting recently published and unique findings on whether any trauma associated with out-of-home care transmits across generations. This includes how it may influence the mental health, resilience and educational progression of children of care leavers.
Dr Sam Parsons is a Senior Research Fellow with vast experience of the British cohort studies. Her research interests include the antecedents and consequences of poor adult basic skills, social exclusion and socioeconomic disadvantage.
Dr Morag Henderson is the Director of Next Steps and Associate Professor in Sociology. Her research interests include educational inequalities, labour market precarity and social isolation.
