About

The Adolescent Adjustment Project (AAP) is a longitudinal NIH-funded research project directed by Dr. Christine McCauley Ohannessian at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. The primary goal of the AAP is to uncover factors that protect young people from developing psychological and substance use problems. The project currently includes a diverse sample of over 1,400 adolescents and a subset of their parents. Adolescents completed surveys during each year in high school. In 2014, follow-up data were collected from AAP participants as they entered emerging adulthood.

Funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Grant K01-AA015059.
