Child volunteers needed for research into stress

Researchers are looking for youngsters to help them investigate how children cope with stress.

They would like to hear from parents with children aged between 7-11 years old who are happy to take part in the study.

“We’re interested in finding out how children cope with everyday problems, for example, problems they’re having with friends or issues they might have at school,” explained Tara Cheetham, a PhD student in the Department of Psychology.

“We’re carrying out a study to answer some of these questions and are looking for children who are aged between 7-11 years old to take part in the research. The study involves coming to the University to answer some brief questions, carry out a short task, and provide some saliva samples.”

Parents who are happy for their child to take part can find out more information or ask any questions about the research by emailing Tara Cheetham  or Dr Julie Turner-Cobb .
