Abstract

We propose a Cycles Breaking conceptual framework to guide perinatal research, interventions and clinical innovations that can prevent or disrupt intersecting intergenerational cycles of childhood maltreatment and psychiatric vulnerability. The components of the framework are grounded in literature, clinical observations, team science collaboration and empirical research from numerous disciplines and specific to the childbearing year. Adoption of a transdisciplinary conceptual framework has the potential to speed progress on research on the intransigent social 8 problem of intergenerational continuity of childhood maltreatment and psychiatric vulnerability.
