The Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) position is with the Child Trauma Research Program (CTRP), a clinical research program affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science's Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (CAPBS). CTRP is nationally recognized for its leadership in developing, researching, and disseminating effective, family-centered interventions for children aged birth through five who experience traumatic events such as: violence in the home, death of a loved one and life-threatening accidents, illnesses, or disasters. Our team of multicultural, multilingual clinical researchers is dedicated to studying treatment models that may help young children and families who experience traumatic events. We conduct efficacy and effectiveness trials on treatment models, provide training across settings and disciplines, and offer direct service to children and their families. CTRP has been the lead program of the Early Trauma Treatment Network, a center of the federally funded National Child Traumatic Stress Network.
Families referred to receive clinical research services at the Child Trauma Research Program (CTRP) at ZSFGH, the UCSF Nancy Friend Pritzker Psychiatry Building, or Children's Hospital Early Intervention Services will be asked to participate in the research studies conducted by CTRP. As CTRP is expanding to multiple campus locations, we are in need of hiring a new CRC position to provide adequate research activity support. The Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) will manage and coordinate the data collection of several concurrent clinical research studies.
Should families consent, at intake they will take part in a comprehensive assessment (described under Procedures). Families who participate in treatment will be asked to complete an assessment after 20 treatment sessions. Families will also be asked to complete assessments after 32 treatment sessions if treatment is extended beyond 20 sessions. Families will also be asked to complete an assessment at the end of treatment if they have completed more than 4 treatment sessions. At each stage of treatment, assessments are used to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment, to determine whether more treatment is recommended, and to develop a plan to meet treatment goals. In addition to these periodic assessment phases, families are asked to complete weekly assessments, starting at intake, to track symptom change and client satisfaction over time. CTRP is funded to conduct clinical research on Child Parent Psychotherapy and other related early childhood trauma informed interventions; research support is critical for the functioning of CTRP. There are currently approximately 15 research protocols at CTRP approved by the Committee for Human Research at UCSF.
