An exploration of the impact of school exclusion on children's mental health and well-being: a mixed methods approach, Claire Parker PhD Student

School exclusion is a disciplinary tool used to remove a child or young person from the school environment temporarily or in some cases permanently. The link between psychopathology and exclusion from school seems intuitively plausible yet there is surprisingly little research that has tested this relationship.

The following seminar presents a little overlap with the recent talk Claire Parker gave for the Think-Tank seminars at the Mood Disorder Centre, University of Exeter. The novel parts of this presentation will be the findings from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) and she now has data from some of the research conducted in Devon with children ‘at risk’ of exclusion from school, the Supporting KIds, avoiding Problems (SKIP) study.
