Injury, disasters, violence, and other acute potentially traumatic events affect tens of millions of children each year globally. After such events, traumatic stress and other psychological sequelae can have substantial impact on children’s health and wellbeing.
A growing number of studies track child symptoms and recovery after acute trauma. But small samples often limit generalizability, and wide variation in measures makes cross-study comparisons challenging.
The PACT/R Data Archive is an international collaborative effort to address this challenge.
