Participants needed for Johns Hopkins ROAR study

We are conducting a research study at Johns Hopkins that evaluates the effectiveness of a specific psychotherapy for adolescents, between the ages of 12 and 17, who have chronic anger and irritability, disproportionate emotional reactions (rages, outbursts), and may have other associated symptoms (problems with sleep or concentration, restlessness, talkativeness). Because of the mood symptoms, these youth may have difficulties with relationships.

The goal of the study is to improve mood and relationships through interpersonal psychotherapy. As part of the study, teens will receive a free comprehensive evaluation and may earn up to $135 in gift cards. Parents may earn up to $135 for participation.
