Getting Started

At any given time, we typically have several ongoing research studies take place at CEH. These may include treatment studies (in which care for mental health difficulties is provided as part of participation) and/or research projects aimed at better understanding a variety of mental conditions (often participants are paid for their time). Check out descriptions of our ongoing studies below and, if you're interested in learning more, please click the associated link to contact us.

Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment Study: Do you experience sudden mood shifts? Are there many ups and downs in your relationships? Do you find yourself engaging in impulsive behaviors (e.g., overeating, substance use, self-injury)? We are conducting a treatment study that provides 18 sessions of individual therapy sessions at no cost. This research study involves a diagnostic interview, 2-3 follow-up assessments, and weekly questionnaires. Click HERE for more information.

Healthy Recovery After Trauma: Do you have a history of unwanted sexual experiences (e.g., sexual assault, rape, sexual abuse, sexual activity when you were unable to consent due to the influence of alcohol or drugs)? Do you have unwanted memories, nightmares, or avoid situations that remind you of what happened? Do you blame yourself or feel physically or emotionally different since the experience? We are conducting a treatment study for people of all genders (e.g., men, women, transgender, genderqueer, non-binary) who have a history of unwanted sexual experiences. Participants will receive up to 18 sessions of individual psychological treatment at no cost. Click HERE for more information. 

Emotional Coping after Physical or Sexual Assault/Abuse (Undergraduate Women): This study is focused on understanding the ways female college students manage negative emotions after experiences involving physical or sexual assault/abuse. The long-term goal of this study is to enhance treatments for women with difficulties related to these types of experiences. Participation will involve a 90-minute visit to the laboratory and two follow-up surveys. Click HERE for more information.
