Emma Howarth is a senior lecturer in the School of Psychology, University of East London. Her primary research focus is on domestic abuse and responses to children who experience it. She is currently leading a feasibility trial (FReDA: Family Recovery After Domestic Abuse) to evaluate a group-based psycho-educational programme for children and their female caregivers, and to consider whether this type of intervention would be helpful for victimised male caregivers. https://fundingawards.nihr.ac.uk/award/NIHR127793.
