Has your child experienced a frightening event?

We are keen to understand what helps children cope. We are conducting a research study looking at how children cope shortly after being involved in any kind of frightening experience. We hope that 300 parents whose child has experienced a traumatic event will take part. The study will involve filling in some questionnaires online. These questionnaires will be about your thoughts, responses and feelings since your child’s traumatic experience. The questionnaires should take about 10 minutes. You are under no obligation to participate and you are free to withdraw from the study at any time. You can access the questionnaire here: https://bathpsychology.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_73DPAr44M9Tf6XX...
