    Default New Program to Promote Social and Emotional Skills for children aged 6 to 8 years

    Department of Psychology and Speech Pathology
    Curtin University


    PARTICIPANTS NEEDED FOR
    A CONTROLLED TRIAL ON A CHILDRENS’ GROUP PROGRAM PROMOTING SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL SKILLS


    We are currently looking for volunteers to take part in the Aussie Optimism Feelings and Friends/Animal Fun program. It is a 10 week program of 1 hour duration per week which involves storytelling, role plays, games, songs, artwork, written work and physical activity. It has been designed by a team of health professionals and researchers to promote both physical activity and mental health.
    We are planning to run the program from the start of Term 3 (22nd July) at the Curtin University Psychology Clinic and are seeking parents who:
    · Have a child who suffers from anxiety or depression or has difficulty regulating their emotions and
    · Their child currently attends Year 1 or 2 primary school in the Perth metropolitan area

    As a participant in this study, you and your child would also be asked to complete several questionnaires aimed at measuring their levels of social and emotional knowledge and psychological functioning. Any information provided will be strictly confidential and your child is free to withdraw from the program at any time.

    For more information or to volunteer for this study please see attached Information Letter and Informed Consent Form or contact:
    Nicole Fresle on Mobile: 043 006 5491 or Email: nicole.fresle@postgrad.curtin.edu.au
    This study has received approval from Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee (Number HR58/2013) and is being conducted as part of a Clinical Psychology (Masters) degree. Thank you for your interest.
