Our Policy

Boulder Crest Foundation Research Collaboration and Data Sharing

We appreciate your interest in research conducted at the Boulder Crest Foundation.

  • If you are requesting information about Posttraumatic Growth (PTG) for the purpose of a
    literature review, thesis project, dissertation, or similar academic paper, please refer to our PTG
    Resource Center for a list of current and relevant research related to various topics and PTG.
    You can also query academic databases to find peer-reviewed studies about PTG, as our
    resource center is not exhaustive, but presents resources relevant to the Boulder Crest
    Foundation’s mission and interests.
  • If you are interested in using one of the PTG-related measurement tools in a study you are
    conducting, please email institute@bouldercrest.org to request the full survey or measurement
    tool and corresponding instructions.
  • We do not routinely share data gathered from program participants with individuals,
    researchers, or entities outside of the Boulder Crest Foundation and our network of Scientific
    Advisory Panel members.
  • We do not allow individuals or entities outside our Foundation or network of Scientific Advisory
    Panel members to gather data on our participants. If you wish to conduct research with
    Veterans and/or First Responders, we ask that you do not solicit our program participants or
    alumni for participation in surveys, focus groups, or other research related projects.
