Study Details

Northern Illinois University (NIU) Research Study
Each couple will receive $25 in Amazon gift cards!

The Family and Development in Context lab at NIU is working on a research study, but we need your help!

If you have a child who is currently receiving therapy or assessment services or has a mental health diagnosis (ages 6-18), and you are in a romantic relationship, YOU could be eligible to participate.

You will be asked to complete a screening questionnaire to determine eligibility.

Then, you and your partner will be asked to complete a 10-15-minute electronic survey.

The collective results could help inform new clinical and family interventions for treatment in the future. You and your partner may also directly benefit from participating; thinking about family processes can build insight that could benefit you and your family.

NOTE: This study is confidential. We will only be collecting your emails for contact purposes. No other identifiable information about you or your partner will be collected or retained.

If you would like to participate, please go to this link for the screening survey:
