Intergenerational transmission of trauma? Testing cellular aging in mothers exposed to sexual abuse and their children
The overarching goal is to test the hypothesis of intergenerational transmission of trauma by measuring cellular aging in both mothers and children, members of the Female Growth and Development Study. Specifically, we are testing telomere length in mothers exposed to sexual abuse, control mothers, and their children.
