Adolescent DBT and Self-Harm Study
Researchers at the University of Minnesota are currently conducting a research study to compare brain differences in adolescents who self-harm and those who do not.
We are currently recruiting teens aged 12-17 who are medically and psychiatrically healthy as well as teens who engage in self-harm and who are planning to begin DBT treatment or who have recently begun DBT treatment.
Participants will complete questionnaires, computer tasks, and an fMRI scan (a safe, non-invasive way to take pictures of the brain.) Some people will be invited back for another assessment.
Individuals with braces or other non-removable metal objects are not eligible for participation.
To see if your child is eligible, contact 612-888-5669.
Who can participate?
- Ages 12-17
- Do not wear braces or other non-removable metal objects
