Wendy Walsh

Wendy A. Walsh, Ph.D. is a Research Assistant Professor of Sociology at the Crimes against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire. Her research includes studies on enhancing community response systems of child abuse and the criminal justice response to child abuse. Current projects include the Multi-site Evaluation of Children’s Advocacy Centers (CAC), CAC research with the National Children’s Alliance, and CAC research in New Hampshire to assess caregiver and child satisfaction after an investigation of child abuse. Other projects include a study on statutory victimization and a study on unwanted sexual experiences during college. She received funding from the Administration of Children and Families to direct a secondary data analysis of the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW) data, a longitudinal national probability study on outcomes for children involved in child protective investigations, to study resilience among maltreated children. She is also currently collaborating with the Carsey Institute on studies to enhance family support programs for families living in rural New Hampshire.
