Child family abuse is a serious global problem that cuts across economic, racial and cultural lines. In addition to harming the wellbeing of a child, maltreatment and extreme stress during childhood can impair early brain development and metabolic and immune system functions, leading to chronic health problems. As a consequence, abused children are at increased risk for a wide range of physical health conditions including obesity, heart disease, and cancer, as well as mental health conditions such as depression, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, high-risk behaviours and violence. Part of the explanation is that child abuse can have not only physical and emotional long-lasting consequences, but it can also leave epigenetic marks on a child's genes. This can alter fundamental biological processes and adversely affect health outcomes throughout life. The construct of multiple victimization in childhood and its effects on long-term development, including biological changes in the child’s brain has special inportance. The core of the presentation will be based on the latest research on prevalence and long-term effects of violence against children within the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) model and cutting-edge knowledge in the field of epigenetic. The importance of epigenetic studies that serve as a bridge between biological and social processes, and give new meaning and research perspective linking poverty and abuse will be reviewed. Findings from research studies specifically relevant for the Alps-Adria Region will be presented, such as (1) multi-centre Balkan epidemiological study of child abuse and neglect, (2) study of long-term effects of institutional abuse of children in the Austrian Catholic Church, (3) studies from Germany and the United States that focused on the role of timing of trauma, specifically of early childhood abuse and the underlying biology of PTSD at the genome-wide level. The findings will serve to highlight the social responsibility of psychologists to use evidence-base to improve prevention, early detection and treatment of children who are exposed to violence. Possible ways forward for developing new treatments of consequences of exposure to violence in childhood in life-long perspective will be discussed. The research and intervention possibilities will be framed in the context of commitment to a number of delicate ethical dilemmas.
