A new webpage has been launched at the Yale Child Study Center (YCSC) to allow families and referring practitioners – and soon school-based personnel – to view and access research participation opportunities at the center. Details including brief study descriptions, eligibility criteria, applicable compensation, and contact information are provided across nearly 30 studies, with more to be added soon.

YCSC research teams collaborate with youth, families, schools, and communities to improve overall social, emotional, behavioral, and developmental health. Visit the new website to learn more about the current and ongoing research efforts underway and find out how to participate in – or refer potential participants to – clinical or school-based studies. A “Frequently Asked Questions” page is also available, addressing some general questions related to research participation, including the voluntary nature of all study participation.

The YCSC, which serves as the department of child psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine, is actively growing in many areas – from basic research in childhood psychiatric disorders to applied research with youth, schools, and families to advance social, emotional, and academic outcomes. There are also research efforts underway related to training clinicians and other behavioral health professionals in evidence-based mental health services, as well as in training educators and school-based practitioners in evidence-based social and emotional instruction.
