Do you have a teenager between 11 and 17 years old?
Can you help us understand how family relationships influence teen mental health?
The Parenting and Family Support Centre at The University of Queensland is seeking families throughout Australia to take part in new research exploring the role of supportive parenting in positive youth development for teenagers. We are looking for families of teenagers with anxiety or behaviour problems, as well as teenagers who are doing well. Who can participate?
Parents with teenagers aged between 11 and 17 who are living in Australia.
After completing the survey, parents can also invite their teenagers to take part. What do parents and teenagers do?
Parents and teenagers will complete a 30-minute online survey
to provide information about how parents raise their teenagers, how teenagers and their parents get along with each other, and parents’ and teenagers’ wellbeing. Parents may participate even if their teenagers choose not to.
All participating families can enter a prize draw for a $100 Coles-Myer gift voucher as a token of appreciation for your participation.How will my participation help?
The information that we obtain from families will help us learn more about how teenagers and their parents get along with one another and how this affects teenagers' wellbeing.
Teenagers' relationships with their parents are important in helping teenagers become more resilient and better able to cope with strong emotions. This research can help us understand how supportive parenting can help teenagers be happy, healthy and reach their full potential.
