The “Making the Race Fair” study is currently recruiting participants – Hamilton families with children between the ages of 2 and 4 years old.
Some young children have emotions and behaviours that are challenging or problematic for families (often referred to as “the terrible twos and beyond”). Children may have temper tantrums because they are feeling upset and frustrated, or they may “act out” in other ways.
Dr. Teresa Bennett and her team are conducting a research study to test whether a program called the “Family Check-Up” can help decrease challenging behaviours and emotions in young children. The Family Check-Up has helped thousands of families in the United States, but it has not yet been tested in Canada and we want to know if it will also help Canadian families.Brain Canada, Canada, children, families, family, family checkup, FCU, Hamilton, HHS, making the race fair, McMaster Children's Hospital, mental illness, Offord Centre, preschoolers
