The first formal research into the effectiveness of the CLIMB® Program was published in the Journal of Psychosocial Oncology in July 2016. The Children’s Treehouse Foundation commissioned the study through the Omni Institute in 2013 and we are very pleased to have the findings published in this prestigious journal. Special thanks to Pallavi Visvanathan, Ph.D. and her team for their commitment to getting the study published. Here is the link to the study:
The study provides hard data that CLIMB® is doing for families and children what we have been saying it does; improving communication between the parent and the child and reducing children’s acting out behavior resulting from their parent’s cancer diagnosis. Please use the study to help justify the use of the program in your location and to satisfy those administrators looking for “research-based”, data-driven programs.
