Abstract

Internationally, children exposed to family and domestic violence (FDV) have been referred to as 'forgotten victims'. However, despite such widespread acknowledgement, little research has focused on the health and social outcomes of children exposed to FDV. The research contained in this thesis used population level linked administrative data to investigate the health and social outcomes of West Australian children exposed to FDV. Exposed children were found to be more likely to be hospitalised for physical and mental ill health, less likely to be school ready and at higher risk of child maltreatment allegations than non-exposed children.
