The RELAX Intervention

We are currently recruiting for online groups of the RELAX intervention for middle schoolers with ADHD (IRB # 20-013). The RELAX intervention consists of 8 weekly 90 minute groups for parents and adolescents. With a review session 1 month and 6 months after the groups are completed. Families will complete ratings on emotional, social, behavioral, and academic functioning before and after the RELAX groups and at follow-up. Please contact the CALMER lab if you are interested in learning more about the study or in participating (calmerlab@vt.edu; 540-231-8511).

Child and Adolescent Social-Emotional Development Study

We invite families of children ages 4-13 to participate in a Virginia Tech research study (IRB # 19-834) focused on how parents can help foster more positive development of social and emotional competencies as children grow. This study includes 3 annual visits in which families will complete questionnaires about emotional, social, and behavioral health; participate in play tasks; and complete weekly ratings for a two week period. Please contact the CALMER lab if you are interested in learning more about the study or in participating (calmerlab@gmail.com; 540-231-8511).

This study is currently on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
