Children's Worlds

The Children's Worlds research is an international project seeking to study different aspects of children’s lives from their subjective viewpoint. In 2018 it was decided to try to also learn about the way in which the general child population perceives the phenomenon of abuse and neglect. Current research aims to examine how children perceive the behavior of responsible adults, when viewed as harmful and abusive. This unique project aspires to pioneer in presenting findings. Data was gathered via structured questionnaires from Jewish and Arab children aged 10 and 12 years

enrolled in Israel elementary schools under Ministry of Education supervision. 2,000 children participated and results will be published in Spring of 2020.
