The Lyda Hill Institute for Human Resilience at UCCS is actively seeking individuals who have experienced trauma to participate in research studies by registering for the Trauma Registry. The registry is a database of volunteers interested in becoming participants in UCCS research and contributing to the scientific understanding and clinical treatments for trauma survivors.

The Trauma Registry offers an opportunity for individuals with personal experiences of trauma to contribute to ongoing research in mental health, disasters, first responder support, human resilience, secondary trauma, and trauma recovery. Your insights can play a crucial role in expanding our understanding of the complexities surrounding these important subjects.

Insights derived from the contributions of individuals in the Trauma Registry have led to findings shared at national conferences, published in professional journals, and resulted in the creation of more effective clinical treatments. Your involvement can contribute to the broader conversation on the behavioral and biological effects of traumatic stressors, potentially influencing future approaches to trauma-related challenges.

Recognizing the sensitivity of the topic, every research project undergoes a comprehensive review and approval process by an Institutional Review Board. This ensures that participant safety and confidentiality are central to the process throughout the research journey.

The Trauma Registry isn’t just a research initiative; it’s an opportunity for those who have experienced trauma to actively contribute to the scientific community’s knowledge base. Your involvement can pave the way for more effective approaches to supporting individuals on their journey of trauma recovery. Join us in this collaborative effort to explore the science underpinning resilience and trauma psychology and contribute to a brighter future for other trauma survivors.
