Project SPaRK is a study of what parents do to support youth who've experienced peer victimization. If you are interested in working with families, this is the study for you!

 Undergraduate research assistants will be trained to work directly with families (i.e., mom, dad, and teen), including recruitment, running interaction tasks, and conducting semi-structured interviews with both parents and youth. This is an excellent opportunity for students interested in pursuing graduate school for clinical, developmental, or school psychology or related field.

Undergraduate research assistants will be trained to complete behavioral observations of pregnant couples during a discussion task. This entails learning to code emotions, behaviors, and relationship dynamics through observation. The goal is to examine ways in which couples support one another during pregnancy and whether these strategies help to promote continued marital satisfaction and supportive parenting post-partum.

 This is an excellent opportunity for students planning to pursue graduate school in clinical, developmental, or school psychology, or a related field.
