What’s Involved

We will assess your child each year for the next four years, and possibly beyond. Each year there will be 3 parts to the assessment process:

Online Questionnaires

(For child and a parent; approximately 1 hour each year)

Child and a parent will fill out an online questionnaire at home. The questionnaires will ask about a variety of personality, emotional and social factors, including friendships, anxiety, mood, bullying, appearance concerns, sleep, coping styles, life satisfaction, and resilience.

Telephone Interviews 

(For child and a parent; approximately 1 hour each year)

The child and their parent will complete separate telephone interviews. The interview will ask about the child’s emotional functioning and will include questions about anxiety, low mood, and body image/eating concerns. Appointments for telephone interviews can be made by contacting the RAW Project office on (02) 9850 4080.

Lab Session at Macquarie University

(For child only; 2 hours each year)

Each child will come into Macquarie University to complete a variety of games and activities in our laboratory. Some tasks will be on a computer, some will involve puzzles or solving a problem, and others will require verbal answers to questions. Appointments for Laboratory sessions can also be made by contacting the RAW Project office on (02) 9850 4080.

Here are some benefits of being involved in this research:

  • $100 plus a “thank you pack” for each yearly assessment
  • A yearly assessment of your child’s emotional wellbeing
  • Opportunities for games, competitions, and prizes throughout the year
