We’re So glad you’re interested in our study! Here’s a brief description. please contact us for more information.
We are researchers at Michigan State University and University of Michigan who are studying how daily hassles or big stressors affect you and your baby. If you would like to participate, and you have a child under 6 months old, call us and we will tell you more and answer any questions.
If you qualify, we can schedule an interview. The interview includes questions about your relationships, the stresses in your life, and the support you have. There are also questions about your mood and your childhood experiences with different stresses as well as questions related to your child’s development/behaviors.
We can interview you at one of three locations (whichever is best for you): East Lansing, Detroit, or Ann Arbor. There is an opportunity to participate in 4 interviews and complete questionnaires at home every 3 months.
We will pay you for your time for each of these interviews and other activities. For the first interview, you receive $100. If you participate in all study activities until your child is 4 years old, you can earn up to $675.
