Learn About Family Mealtime Interactions

Join the Simply Dinner study and learn to observe parent and family interactions during mealtimes with preschool-aged children.

The Simply Dinner study is seeking research assistants to code family mealtime interactions from videotapes. The project involves learning to observe and code parent-child behaviors and family level behaviors during mealtimes. Most training will occur during Summer 2018 and coding will begin later Summer 2018.

This is a great way to gain research experience, build observational skills, and learn about parenting and family interactions!
