How experiences in childhood and adolescence affect later life

This event is now closed for registration. However, if you wish to attend you can still do so by emailing 

Led by Lesley McAra and Susan McVie, the Edinburgh Study of Youth Transitions and Crime (ESYTC) has generated new understanding about youth offending and the impact of interventions.

At this CYCJ webinar, Lesley and Susan will draw on new findings from the Edinburgh Study about the long term impact of different types of experiences in childhood and adolescence. They will also consider issues around offending and victimisation, as well as wider factors such as mental health, substance use and family dynamics.


This longitudinal study, which has been running for almost 25 years, has collected data from individuals directly, but also from a range of other sources which have been linked together to provide a broad perspective on change over the life-course. It has led directly to reform in youth justice policy and practice in Scotland and has had international influence.

A joining link will be sent out to all registered delegates the day before this webinar. Please note the event cannot be accessed via EventBrite.
