Parenting Under Pressure

Parenting Under Pressure en español

The Parenting Under Pressure study explored the ways in which the COVID-19 outbreak specifically influenced caregivers, children and adolescents, and family life. The study involved a range of questionnaires on the impacts that the safer-at-home order and media consumption had on family life and child and parent emotional health. We will use these results to inform the development of resources for families during this challenging time.

Ages: Parents of children 6-17 years

What is involved:  You will answer questionnaires online. Study participation will take approximately 35 minutes.

What do I get out of participating: You will go in a draw to win one of twenty $100 gift vouchers (drawn in July 2020).

Enrollment for this study has now closed. 

Inside Out

It is no surprise that often people experience strong emotional responses in their bodies. However, physical symptoms, particularly gastrointestinal symptoms, have scarcely been studied as a measure of emotional arousal. This study will explore the relationship between physical and emotional symptoms and health. In addition, we will explore the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on physical and emotional health.

Ages: Anyone 18 years and older!

What is involved:  Complete a confidential online survey on topics including mental and physical health.

What do I get out of participating: Enter to win 1 of 4 $50 Gift Cards or SONA Credit (for UCLA Psychology Students).

Enrollment for this study has now closed. 

UCLA Student Mental Health

The UCLA Student Mental Health Study examines how different entry pathways to college education (e.g., transfer or traditional routes) influence student mental health. The study also examines how institutional resources can improve mental health in the face of the existing challenges students encounter.

Ages: Students at UCLA

What is involved:  This is an anonymous online survey that will be taken in one sitting (approximately one hour). The survey is compiled of twenty short questionnaires that ask about demographic information, mental health symptoms, utilization of UCLA resources/communities, student perceptions of UCLA resources/communities, and other experiences you may encounter as a student.

What do I get out of participating: If you complete the survey through the SONA website you will receive course credit. If you did not complete the study for course credit, you will be entered into a drawing at the conclusion of the study for the chance to win one of two $50 Amazon gift cards.
