Les conséquences de la maltraitance dans l'enfance sur la santé physique et mentale à l'âge adulte : approche épidémiologique de santé publique

Abstract : English scientific literature includes numerous retrospective studies and, more specifically, prospective studies (birth cohorts). These show that, compared with control subjects, adults who have been abused as children experience significantly more somatic (poor general health, hypertension, etc.) and mental (depression, addictions, crime, suicide attempts, etc.) health problems. The latter problem is more specifically a result of sexual violence. There have been very few studies in France on the long-term consequences of childhood abuse. It is therefore necessary to develop research by including child abuse in the subjects covered by the Elfe cohort, to develop evaluative studies and psychological analyses into the protective factors that constitute “resilience”. Early behavioural disorders are the main signs of child abuse and general screening should be made of these regardless of socio-economic category. This screening process should be subjected to professional secrecy and organized as part of school health checkups in accordance with the Act of 5 March 2007 reforming child protection.
