I am a graduate student in clinical psychology at the University of Arkansas. Please consider helping me with a study that will help us better understand how various traumatic events can affect a person’s mental health.
We know that childhood abuse and domestic violence put victims at risk for undesired mental health symptoms or disorders, such as Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Depression. Women are much more at risk for these problems, partly because they are at a greater risk of being victimized through violent means. For these reasons, I am interested in learning more about how exposure to traumatic events leads to negative mental health outcomes in some victims. Your participation can contribute to important advancements in psychological knowledge, prevention, and intervention – and how that might be different than people who have not experienced traumatic events. You do not have to have experienced a traumatic event to participate.

We would like to invite all caregivers in this group to take a survey about their child’s sleep behavior. This survey is a part of a research study about the sleep habits of children, and is conducted at and approved by the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
Although articles about the importance of sleep are appearing all over the media, surprisingly, little is known about the typical sleep habits of children since parents are usually not questioned about their child’s sleep when there is a problem. This survey will help us better understand typical sleep behavior in children. This information will be invaluable in helping us diagnose sleep disorders in children and guide parents in regards to normal childhood sleep behavior.
The survey consists of questions pertaining to your child’s sleep habits and previous medical history. It takes 20 to 30 minutes to take the online survey. Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary.
To reach the survey, click here.
If you would rather not do an online survey, we can also send a printable version, which can be filled out by hand and mailed back to us.
