In this special midweek episode, Helen and Fiona joined Al Coates to introduce the trial, why research into interventions for children and young people in the UK care system who have experienced early-life trauma is urgently needed, and to ask for help finding more families to join the trial.

Interested in taking part in the RIGHT Trial?

“Are you interested in taking part in the RIGHT research trial and contributing to improving care pathways for adopted and fostered children? The Right trial is looking to determine the effectiveness of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy versus other appropriate treatment, offered to children experiencing difficulties related to early years trauma. We are also looking to identify how care pathways can be improved to ensure our vulnerable children are easily able to access the right treatment at the right time.

RIGHT is currently recruiting for adoptive families in the following areas: Hertfordshire, Central Bedfordshire, Bedford, Oxfordshire, Lanarkshire, Doncaster, East Midlands – Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham, and Nottinghamshire, West Midlands – Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell, and Walsall.

And for children in a long-term foster placement in: Lanarkshire, Nottingham City, Bradford, Norfolk, Oxfordshire.
