We are looking at past life experiences, the development of youths’ emotions and self-regulation, and the role these things play in how youths cope with and respond to typical types of stress experienced in daily life.
Participating in this project may help us to better understand how youths’ emotional and cognitive development and their life experiences influence one other. We hope that this information will help us understand what factors promote youths’ positive emotional health and cognitive development.
What does my participation involve?
You and your child will be asked to visit our laboratory at Harvard University for a session that will last up to two hours. You and your child will fill out some forms, and your child will participate in a number of activities, some of which are on the computer. You will be compensated $50 and your child will be compensated $30. Travel reimbursement may be available.

Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email email@example.com to get involved.
