Online decision aid developmental trauma


From until

Supported by

Koning Boudewijnstichting

In this project an online decision aid is being developed to support primary care professionals in the prevention, detection and management of developmental trauma in children with a refugee background. The decision aid guides them through a questionnaire about child/parent/caregiver. Based on their answers, the decision aid draws conclusions about child/parent/care figure dysfunction and formulates recommendations. Through numerous information blocks, tips and tricks, the decision aid also has a strong educational function.

The research line Psychology and Technology collaborates for this project with Solentra vzw, Zenjoy, Ligant and Eerstelijnszone Maasland.
