Research Study for Mothers and Adolescents Between 12 and 16 Years Old

The ArKIDS lab at the University of Arkansas is currently running a study that is focused on mothers and their adolescent children between the ages of 12 and 16 years old. The study takes two sessions — the first is three hours, the second is one and half hours — and parents and adolescents each get $84 for completing the study.

The study is funded by the National Science Foundation, and it is concerned with learning about adolescent communication. You and your child will also be trained in communication techniques and asked to practice these techniques between sessions.
