Research Opportunity for Adoptees in NYC Area

3 October 2017
Dr. Nim Tottenham

DDPI is proud to support Nim Tottenham, Ph.D., Director of the Developmental Affective Neuroscience Lab at Columbia University, and her efforts to recruit internationally and domestically adopted children aged 6-8 for a study about how early child care affects emotions.

Dr. Tottenham will be collaborating with DDPI Board Member at Large for the United States, Courtney Rennicke, Ph.D., to track children who have received DDP therapy through their study, which provides a potentially exciting opportunity to document the impact of DDP on children’s development.

Dr. Tottenham and her team are actively seeking volunteers:

  • 6 to 8-year-old children and their parents
  • 3-hour visit at Columbia University (1x per year for 3 years + phone check ins)
  • $200 each time, small prizes, and your child’s brain movie
  • Car service available for families who live farther away
  • Make a large contribution today to the understanding of children’s development

For more information and to participate please visit the Lab’s website.

If you have questions about the study please email the lab.
