What effects does violence in the home or in an early relationship have on children's behaviour and success at school? What are behaviours and signs that teachers can watch out for? During the launch event for our expert paper “Educational Sabotage: A form of abuse against children and youth with potentially long-term consequences”, Prof. Carolina Øverlien shared insights from her research.
Carolina Øverlien is professor of social work at Stockholm University and lead researcher at the Norwegian Center for Violence and Traumatic Stress Studies (NKVTS). Professor Øverlien has researched Youth Intimate Partner Violence (YIPV) for many years and is currently leading the three-year research project 'Drawing the Line' on sexual YIPV at NKVTS, Oslo. The project focuses on young perpetrators and victims as well as the justice system and schools’ understanding and handling of this violence.
