Summary

The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of how stressful life experiences and learning styles impact threat reactivity in childhood. Children that experience highly stressful situations are at risk for diverse mental health concerns, including anxiety and depressive disorders and PTSD.There may be certain periods of time in development that this risk is heightened. By studying the mechanisms underlying threat response, we hope to better predict short-term and long-term effects of stress and trauma in youth, as well as inform and improve clinical care.
