DEVELOPMENTAL TRAUMA DISORDER

FIELD TRIAL - PHASE III

Apply to Become One of Six

New National Field Sites

After successful completion of Phase I and data collection for Phase II of the Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD) Field Trial, we are now recruiting an additional wave of field trial participants in order to reach the requisite sample size for sufficient statistical power to conclusively test the validity and clinical utility of this proposed psychiatric disorder. Hence, Phase III of the DTD Field Trial will involve recruitment of an additional 300 children and their caregivers from clinical samples across an additional six national field trial sites. In an effort to target populations that were underrepresented in the previous wave of data collection and to make our research more reflective of the diversity within the United States, sites that serve Asian American, American Indian, Native Alaskan, tribal, and/or rural youth are strongly encouraged to apply. Likewise, clinical settings that specialize in the treatment of non-trauma focused child psychiatric problems and disorders (e.g., attentional, eating, mood, behavioral disorders, etc.) are also strongly encouraged to apply, as are large, general community-based child mental or behavioral health settings.
