Research opportunity for female sibling pairs

Researchers at the Center for OCD, Anxiety, and Related Disorders, known as COACH, are conducting a research study to better understand the experiences of sibling pairs where one sibling has an anxiety disorder and the other does not.

The study is looking for pairs of female siblings, both between the ages of 10 and 17, to participate in this study. To qualify, one sibling must have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and the other must not have.

Participation involves:

  • A brief interview with the study investigator via Zoom
  • Completion of some online mental health questionnaires
  • A total participation time of 1 hour or less

Participants will be compensated for their time.
