Parent-Child Social, Cognition, and Health Experiences
Chinese Americans are one of the largest, fastest-growing, and most socioeconomically diverse immigrant populations in the United States. Two studies of the Family Development Project aim to identify different sources of stress in Chinese American immigrant families and understand their impact on family well-being.
Study 3 is a more extensive assessment of stress and family functioning in Chinese American immigrant families. This study is open to first-generation Chinese American immigrant parents who have at least one child between the ages of 7-10. Both the parent and the child participate in a 2-2.5 hour research protocol that includes questionnaires, interviews, computerized tests, and interactive discussions between the parent and the child. Participants in Study 3 will also have the opportunity to participate in a biological assessment of stress and health.
