The Emotion Regulation in Families study, which is part of the Psychology Department at the University of Oregon, is seeking mothers of children aged 36-60 months who have experienced the following in their lives: fear of abandonment in relationships, difficulty controlling anger, being impulsive, and having relationships with extreme ups and downs. Additional screening qualifications may also apply.
Mothers and children would participate in a 2.5 hour video-taped session at the UO campus. We are interested in learning about how children develop self-regulation. During participation, mothers will fill out questionnaires while children do attention-focusing tasks as well as tasks that help us learn about how children understand feelings. Mother and child will then get a chance to play together. All information is kept confidential. Mothers can earn $50 and an additional $30 for at-home saliva collection.
Interested families should contact the project coordinator, Emily Jacobs, by phone at 541-346-7054 in order to schedule a visit. You are also welcome to e-mail the study coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org, with your phone availability or any questions.
Parenting Now! is providing this information as a service to the University of Oregon and our participants. Any questions about the study should be referred to the Emotion Regulation project staff as listed above.
