- A Family-Based Examination of Information Processing
If you are a parent with OCD and have a child or children between the ages of 8-18, you may be eligible to take part in a research study at the Massachusetts General Hospital. We are studying the thinking stlyes of parents with OCD and those of their children.
Your participation will include 1 phone visit (45-90 minutes) and 1 clinic visit (approximately 60-90 minutes). The research study visits involve assessments of you and your child(ren). Assessments are comprised of three components, including: 1) diagnostic interviews with the parent with OCD about him/herself and his/her eligible children, 2) questionnaires completed by parents and children about various psychological experiences, and 3) cognitive asessments of parents and children in the clinic on the MGH campus. The parent will receive a $50 gift card for completing the diagnostic interviews and each family member that attends the clinic visit will receive an additional $25 gift card. If the family drives, parking will also be reimbursed.
In-person study visits will take place at our clinic at MGH in Boston. For more information, or if you’re interested in taking part in the study, please contact Allie at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 617-643-4387.
