Study on Emotion Regulation in Children

Sponsored by The Vermont Center for Children, Youth, and Families (UVM/FAHC)

DO YOU HAVE A CHILD BETWEEN THE AGES OF 8 AND 13?

The Vermont Center for Children, Youth, and Families (UVM/FAHC) is conducting a study on emotion regulation in children, and we would like you and your child to participate! The study will take about 4-5 hours of your time for which we will compensate $100 (plus travel + parking expenses).

This can be divided up into two visits of 2 to 2.5 hours, if desired. We know your schedules are busy, and will do our best to find convenient times for your family, such as after school, evenings, or weekends.

What does the study involve?

  • Semi-structured interview with parent/guardian and child

  • Structured interview with parent/guardian

  • Online questionnaires for parent/guardian and child

  • Eye-tracking tasks and heart rate monitoring with child

  • Saliva sample for DNA from parent/guardian and child
