Adelphi University: Call for participants in study

You are invited to participate in a study about the experience of people who have been through a trauma but in the past did not get a diagnosis of it. If you are over 18, you have had a traumatic experience (such as the loss of a loved one or domestic violence), and you sought help from a mental health practitioner but did not get a trauma diagnosis, please consider participating in this study.

My hope is to offer you a voice and an opportunity to share your story. I also intend to educate professionals about what this experience is like, with the intention to help develop better policy and programs for survivors of trauma. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Doctoral student at Adelphi University. If you wish to participate, please contact me and we will make arrangements to discuss your experience (in person or via technology). Participation will mean three interviews of 60-90 minutes and review of your interviews. Everything you share is confidential. Please consider participating in this important work; your story is important and can contribute to helping others have a better experience.
