Why We Value Your Participation

As a research unit that focuses on developmental aspects of early life and those interactions that occur between mother and child, we value our participants who are ready and willing to dedicate a small amount of time to our studies. We are able to look at something far from artificial—a mother and child playing and interacting as they normally would day to day. In doing so, we can obtain the most accurate data to test our hypotheses and hopefully expand the scope of knowledge in the field of developmental psychology.
