Louise Arseneault

Professor in Developmental Psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London

Louise Arseneault is a Professor in Developmental Psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London. Her research focuses on the study of harmful behaviours such as violence and substance dependence, their developmental origins, their inter-connections with mental health, and their consequences for victims.

In the early stages of her career, she examined harmful behaviours as a developmental outcome, primarily in adolescents and in adults. Over time, this broadened her interests to include harmful behaviours as causes of psychiatric disorders. She has extensively studied how the consequences of violence begin in childhood by studying bullying victimisation and child maltreatment.
