About the study
The study is being led by leading child clinical psychologist, Professor Paul Stallard from the University of Bath’s Department for Health; and is being undertaken with academic colleagues across five countries which have experienced extensive lockdowns and school closures: the UK, Portugal, Spain, The Netherlands and Romania.
The researchers want to understand more about how children and their caregivers are coping with social distancing, school closures and other challenges imposed by covid-19.
What does taking part in the study involve?
The one-off, anonymous, online survey asks parents and carers about how their child is coping and how they think this period is impacting their overall wellbeing; as well as for reflections on their own parenting, and the different ways families are managing. It takes approximately 20 - 30 minutes to complete.
