Los estudios hechos en nuestros laboratorios se enfocan en las familias y su paternidad. Muchos de estos estudios están enfocados a problemas con miembros de la familia que hayan sido diagnosticados con Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), pero otros estudios están enfocados con la relación entre padres e hijos. Algunos de los estudios mas recientes han examinado el como piensan padres e hijos acerca de sus propios comportamientos, y como estos pensamientos se relacionan con la toma de decisiones familiares y sus resultados con los hijos.
EL UBC Parenting Lab actualmente conduce 5 estudios en su laboratorio y busca familias que deseen participar en estos. El único requisito (el cual es indispensable) es tener un nivel fluido en Ingles. Comunícate si alguna te interesa:
1. The ADHD & Parents Study examines parenting and parent-child relationships in families with and without members with ADHD symptoms. This study is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
We are currently recruiting both single-mother and two-parent families with boys aged 6-12. Parents and the child will visit the UBC Parenting lab to answer questionnaires and complete video-taped interactions together.
Two-parent families will receive $75.00 and single-mother families will receive $50 for their participation after their lab visit.
Children will receive a UBC T-Shirt and small prizes after their lab visit.
The visit will take about 1.5 – 2 hours. Appointments are scheduled for families to come to the UBC Parenting Lab at a time convenient to them.
2. The Online Parenting Study is for mothers of 6- to 10- year old boys and girls. This study examines how mothers view their children’s behavior. This study is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).
Moms are able to participate from their home/work, using a computer with an Internet connection. They will complete several online questionnaires and tasks.
It takes about 90 minutes to complete the study.
Mothers receive $15 for participating!
3. The Chat Study is for families of 8- to 12-year old sons.
Moms or dads and their sons (8- to 12-years, with or without ADHD) will visit the Parenting Lab at the University of British Columbia.
Boys will complete three social interaction tasks on the computer, and some questionnaires about themselves.
Parents will be asked to complete some questionnaires as well.

4. The Emotions Study is for mothers of 7- to 10-year old boys and girls. It examines emotions and how they influence the ways that individuals make judgments about other people and objects in the environments.
Moms will visit the Parenting Lab at the University of British Columbia. They will view short film clips on a computer and complete some questionnaires.
The lab visit takes about 60 minutes.
Mothers will receive $15 for participating. Appointments are scheduled for families to come to the UBC Parenting Lab at a time convenient to them.
5. The Emotion Video Study is for boys aged 9- to 12-years. Boys older than 12 years who appear younger for their age also are eligible. This study is designed to help us increase our understanding of children’s perceptions of emotions.

We can schedule a home visit or a visit to our lab for filming, with afternoon, evening, and weekend appointments available.
Visits will take 30 to 45 minutes.
