What is it about?
Research evidence shows that adolescents have a higher likelihood of experiencing abuse in their homes but little is known about the extent of this problem for adolescents living in war-affected areas. Our study aimed to determine the rates and correlates of adolescent-reported familial abuse in post-conflict northern Uganda. It also assessed the link between experiencing abuse at home and (a) adolescent beliefs supporting aggression and (b) adolescent well-being and life satisfaction.
