INVESTIGATING PARENT ATTITUDES TO USING D-CYCLOSERINE FOR TREATING CHILDHOOD ANXIETY DISORDERS
You are invited to participate in an online study investigating parent attitudes to using a new medication called D-Cycloserine for treating clinically severe anxiety in children. By understanding parent’s attitudes towards this medication, we hope to better learn how to treat children suffering from anxiety disorders. In order to participate, you need to have been the parent of a child aged ten years. This is because we are going to ask you what treatment decisions you would make as the parent of your first child if they had an anxiety disorder. We also want to know some demographic and personality information about you. This survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.
