Abstract

This dataset comes from the combination of two broad projects that recruited from the same hospitals, with the first (smaller) project being built upon by the second project (which contained additional measures and an additional follow-up). Broadly the overall project aimed to look at predictors of children's adjustment (mainly PTSD) after single-incident injury, with the overarching hypothesis that a combination of physiological/biological, cognitive and a parental anxiety factors would predict later adjustment. Children age 7 - 17 years with single-incident trauma were enrolled.

Inclusion criteria

Child age 7 - 17 exposed to single-incident trauma. RTAs, falls etc. Could include one-off assaults that were not child-abuse or family-related. Children were eligible if they were involved in a potentially distressing or traumatic event within the past 4 weeks

Exclusion criteria
  • moderate-severe head injury
  • child was experiencing ongoing trauma (e.g., exposure to domestic violence).
