HEALTHY VOLUNTEER FAQs
Q: If I participate in the research study as a Healthy Volunteer, does my child also participate in the study?
A: Yes! Your child will still participate in the study with you if you are eligible to participate as a Healthy Volunteer.
Q: If I participate in the research study as a Healthy Volunteer, is compensation provided?
A: Yes, compensation is provided to Healthy Volunteers who participate in the study.
Q: How does being a Healthy Volunteer differ from being a regular volunteer in the study?
A: Healthy Volunteers participate in the same assessments that regular volunteers do in the study. They both complete a phone screener and full clinical intake to determine eligibility in the study. Mother and child will still both be scheduled for 4 study assessments over the course of 1 year.
However, while some mothers who participate as regular volunteers will be randomized to receive Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Training Skills, no Healthy Volunteer will be randomized to receive this intervention.
