In this lecture Tim Morris will present results from recent research examining how transitions through neighbourhood environments impact upon subsequent mental health in childhood.

Guest speaker: Tim Morris (University of Bristol)

About the colloquium

Using longitudinal data from ALSPAC, a UK population based birth cohort study, we examine
i) the impact of moving through neighbourhoods of differing socioeconomic status on child behavioural problems,
ii) the impact of being ‘stuck in place’ on behavioural problems, and
iii) how adverse family life events impact upon differential transitions into more or less socioeconomically deprived areas.

In the lecture Tim Morris will also outline the work that will be conducted during his research visit to Delft with a view to discussing ideas with the group at OTB.
