*****Anyone with a child aged 6-12 years who would be interested in helping out with valuable psychological research and/or making an easy fiver ! 😊 ********
Our names are Laura Taylor, Sarah Carol and Dearbháile Counihan, and we are researchers at University College Dublin. We are currently conducting research exploring how primary school children in Ireland develop an awareness of other social groups (e.g. Travellers, refugees, children with a diagnosis of ASD), and the implications of this understanding for intergroup relations.
We would like to invite your child to play a series of games and answer a few questions during a 15-minute Zoom session with a trained research assistant. You will accompany your child during this virtual meeting and no identifying information will be gathered during any of the games. We would just like to know what your child thinks about different images and explore their perception of different social groups in Ireland.
There are no right or wrong answers to any of the games, and at the end you can submit your email address to receive a €5 National Book Token. You will also have the option to print an ´Honorary Child Scientist´ certificate for your child to keep! We would be incredibly grateful for allowing your child to partake in this study.
If interested, please follow the below link to our Online Consent Form for more information and to schedule a meeting time that suits yourself and your child!
If you have any questions about the study, or wish to discuss it further please do not hesitate to contact me:
