Purpose – This paper aims to update the chapter by Sutton and Murray in Support from the Start by providing an overview of: research linking the development and experiences of infants and toddlers with the risks of later antisocial behaviour; and evidence on effective interventions for children aged 0-2 and their families.
Design/methodology/approach – The authors give a narrative review on the effects on mothers and their babies of postnatal depression.
Findings – The review examines the effects on mothers and their babies of postnatal depression, impaired bonding, insecure attachment as well as the impact of maltreatment in childhood. It considers a number of evidence-based preventive interventions implemented in the UK to help children aged 0-2 and their parents.
Originality/value – The paper provides an overview of recent evidence for the factors contributing to difficulties for parents of young children and identifies interventions demonstrated in high-quality studies to prevent or address these problems.
