THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE EMOTIONAL LEARNING AND MEMORY (ELM) ONLINE STUDY!

The ELM online study is investigating how family factors and relationships influence mood and anxiety in youth. 

Participation involves completion of surveys for both parents (15 minutes each), and a survey (30 minutes) for their adolescent child (aged 12 to 16).

AM I ELIGIBLE?

  If you answer 'YES' to all relevant criteria below, you are eligible for participation in the study!

  • The following three family members are happy to participate:

    • Adolescent: aged 12-16 years.

    • The primary male caregiver of the adolescent (biological, adoptive or step-parent, who has known the child for at least 3 years and/or spends at least 2 days per fortnight with them).

    • The primary female caregiver of the adolescent (biological, adoptive or step-parent, who has known the child for at least 3 years and/or spends at least 2 days per fortnight with them).

  • Fluent in written and spoken English.

  • Live in Australia or New Zealand.

  • Access to the internet and an electronic device (phone, tablet or computer).

Please note: We understand that families can be made up of a number of different parent and child variations; including same sex parents, grandparent or other family member carers, and more. For the purpose of our research, we wish to look at the role of male and female parents on adolescent development. However, we acknowledge that families come in many wonderful and important shapes and sizes.
