Research at the Child Study Center
Effective solutions to some of the major problems affecting today's youth are within our reach. To create these solutions, we must bring our intellectual, technological and scientific resources to bear on these problems.
A key goal of the NYU Child Study Center is to increase the body of scientific knowledge of child and adolescent mental illness. Since its founding in 1998, the Child Study Center has published more than 400 articles in peer-reviewed journals and made thousands of presentations at national and international scientific meetings.
Researchers at the Center have considerable experience and expertise in developing testable theoretical formulations and scientific methods to evaluate interventions and to identify those with greatest potential impact.
It is our hope that research conducted at the NYU Child Study Center will help to reduce the number of children and adolescents suffering from mental health problems and find new ways of effectively treating psychiatric illness.
