UI invites women to participate in infant-maternal emotion study
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Women who are pregnant or who have recently given birth
are invited to participate in a University of Iowa Health Care study of infant
and maternal emotions.
The study will involve having a UI psychologist make two visits to each participant
at her home. Each visit will include a brief evaluation of the infant's development
and the mother will be asked to answer a few questions. Some participants
will be invited to participate in a more extensive study that involves being
videotaped while interacting with their infant.
For more information, call Beth Troutman, Ph.D., UI assistant professor (clinical)
of psychiatry, at (319) 356-1193.
