Psychology Dept. looking for volunteers to help with studies of family development

Western Today staff

Members of the Department of Psychology at Western Washington University are looking for volunteers who are interested in participating in studies of family development.

Joining CLASP simply means that you may be contacted about participating in WWU studies. You choose which specific projects you would like to participate in. By joining CLASP, you will support education and knowledge development at WWU, as well as learning more about psychological research relevant to yourself and your family.

WWU Psychology faculty and students study a wide variety of topics related to child and family development, such as preschool children’s and adolescents’ understanding of themselves and others, and family dynamics and romantic relationships. One example of a current study involves family storytelling activities. Intact families with at least two children, one of whom is a senior in high school, are invited to be a part of this study in which families share stories together in a naturalistic atmosphere. Families are compensated $50 for participation.

If you would like to be a part of this study or would like to join CLASP and learn about other studies of children and families, please contact Kate McLean by e-mail or at (360) 650-3570, or visit the CLASP webpage. Benefits include spending some time with your family and taking part in the promotion of science and discovery!
