    Default Dads and child anxiety- research featured on Seven News!

    As part of my Clinical Psychology post-graduate study, I am conducting exciting research to consider whether rough and tumble play between fathers and their children can prevent childhood anxiety disorders.

    Parents who participate in the study will be asked to complete 3 questionnaires online. Questionnaires can be completed by mothers and fathers of children aged 4 to 12 years by simply logging on to the following URL: www.psy.mq.edu.au/research/fathers
    Participation will take about 15-20 minutes and all participants will be given the opportunity to enter a draw to win an Apple iPad 2.


    We are calling for 350 parents (MUMS AND DADS) of children aged between 4 and 12 years to take part in the study, which is one of the first studies of its kind to consider the relationship between a father’s role and temperament and mental health (anxiety disorders) in children. This new project will examine father’s challenging behaviours such as rough and tumble play, and how they relate to childhood anxiety, to parents’ psychological wellbeing and how they are reported by both mothers and fathers. It is hoped that the research will identify a clear role for fathers in developing healthy emotion regulation. A story about this research was featured on Channel 7 news!

    Can step dads participate? My two are 3 and 5 (4 and 6 next month) and their step dad is the one who spends the most time with them and helping to raise them

    Unfortunately at this stage the wording of the questionnaires only allows for biological parents. But we will certainly consider including step parents in future research! Thank you for your interest
