2.  Risk and Protective Factor Study
Photo - boy looking out window, rainy dayWe are currently looking for parents of preschool children to participate in a study to better understand how risk factors in children’s lives impact their social-emotional health. In this study, parents will be asked to complete a packet of three assessments/surveys, including the DECA-P2, the Conner’s Early Childhood assessment, and a survey to assess the amount of risk in the family’s life. The packet takes about 30 minutes to complete, and participants will be compensated for their time. We are also in search of individuals who can help us recruit parents! Individuals who help us recruit parents to participate will also be compensated.
