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.
