Request for Participants in Study about Paternal Mental Health (Online Study)
Thank you for taking the time to read this study advert, I really appreciate it.
My names Josh and I'm a trainee clinical psychologist currently working for the NHS and completing research with families at the University of Surrey. If you are a parent of a child aged between 6 - 11 years old, I could really use your help and would value hearing your experiences.
We are looking for parents to take part in two studies focused on parenting and child development. One is for fathers that explores paternal wellbeing. The other is for mothers and fathers, looking at social media and technology use in the family.
What would taking part involve?
You will be asked to complete questionnaires about aspects of your life, parenting and your child. There are two links below, one for mothers and one for fathers. If you’re considering taking part, please click on the appropriate link (you may need to copy and paste the link into your browser). You will then be taken to a page which will provide an information sheet. Fathers may choose to take part in one or both studies outlined. If you decide to take part, you will be asked to complete a consent form and the questions will then follow. This should take approximately 10 minutes, or 20 minutes if you are a father who has elected to take part in both studies. As a thank you for your time all participants will be entered into a price draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher.
Who can take part?
• Fathers and mothers living with children aged between six and 11 years old.
• You must be able to read fluent English and have access to the internet via a device such as a computer, smartphone, laptop or tablet.
• Unfortunately, if you have been absent from your child’s life consistently for more than six months, you’re unable to take part.
• Unfortunately, if your child has a learning disability or a diagnosed neurodevelopmental disorder, you’re unable to take part.
