Dear mothers,

If you are a mother with at least one child currently attending primary school, you are invited to participate in a study examining how mothers respond when their children become distressed. This is a fairly new area of research and opens up a lot of doors for more effective treatment of anxiety in children.

Participation will take approximately 15 minutes and at the end, participants will also go into a draw to win one of five double movie passes for Events cinemas!

Participants will be required to complete a series of questionnaires and two short activities. They will also be presented with two scenarios describing a child who is feeling nervous about starting a new sport and asked to rate their emotions.

Please note that participation in this study is completely voluntary and all data collected will be anonymous. Participants must be over 18 years old and live in Australia for entry into the prize draw.
