Family adversity and health characteristics associated with intimate partner violence in children and parents presenting to health care: a population-based birth cohort study in EnglandDownload
Little is known about the clinical characteristics of children and parents affected by intimate partner violence (IPV) presenting in health-care settings. We examined the associations between family adversities, health characteristics, and IPV in children and parents using linked electronic health records (EHRs) from primary and secondary care between 1 year before and 2 years after birth (the first 1000 days). We compared parental health problems in in children and parents with and without recorded IPV. Authors: Syed, S., Gilbert, R., Feder, G., Howe, L., Powell, C., Howarth, E., Deighton, J., Lacey, R.
The impact of area level mental health interventions on outcomes for secondary school pupils: Evidence from the HeadStart programme in EnglandDownload
In light of the dramatic rise in mental health disorders amongst adolescents seen in the past decade across the world, there is an urgent need for robust evidence on what works to combat this trend. This paper provides the first robust evaluation of the impacts on school outcomes of 6-year funding programme (HeadStart) for area-level mental health interventions for adolescents. Exploiting educational administrative data on ten cohorts of state-educated secondary school students, we use the synthetic control method to construct counterfactual outcomes for areas that received the funding.

Umbrella systematic review finds limited evidence that school absence explains the association between chronic health conditions and lower academic attainmentDownload

Disentangling the developmental and conceptual links between emotion dysregulation, self-regulation and internalizing and externalizing difficulties in childhood: a longitudinal investigationDownload
There is a close association between emotion regulation and mental ill-health but how they influence each other over time is unclear. The close association between the constructs also raises the question of how conceptually distinct or similar they are. We use data from the UK Millennium Cohort Study to investigate temporal and conceptual relationships between emotion regulation and mental health difficulties in childhood.

Enhancing mental health and well-being outcomes for psychotherapy and counselling through idiographic analysis: A four-quadrant approachDownload the open access paper
The analysis of personalised measures, such as goals, can be explored in a number of ways to meet the needs of exploring outcomes in the room with the client on a one-to-one level, but also any requirements of aggregating the scores up to explore service evaluation. We came up with four quadrants of analysis to illustrate the main ways we suggest the data can be considered. We used goal based outcomes as our worked example. The four quadrants are: 1. Individual goal progress on single goals 2. Individual goal progress by aggregated goals 3. Team/service level progress by goal theme 4. Team/service level progress by aggregate goal scores Authors: Jacob, J., Rae, J. P., Allegranti, B., Duncan, C. & Cooper, M.
