Past Events

What Makes Maltreated Children Resilient?Holmes Event Panel

Child maltreatment is a major public health issue, with more than 700,000 US children maltreated every year. Childhood physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect have all been associated with a variety of negative health outcomes in adulthood. However, some children are resilient and navigate the path to adulthood without negative outcomes. Case Western Reserve University Assistant Professor Megan Holmes, PhD, and colleagues, Adam Perzynski, PhD, Susan Yoon, MSW, and Julia Kobulsky, MA, asked the question, “what makes maltreated children resilient?” in their April 2016 talk on their research following maltreated children through various stages of childhood.
