he University of Utah Personality, Emotions, Brain, and Behavior Lab (“PEBBL”) is recruiting teenage girls between the ages of 13 and 17, along with their mothers, to participate in a suicide prevention study. Erin Kaufman, a Doctoral Candidate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Utah, will be available to discuss the study with interested participants on Monday evening, March 6th during the screening of “Hope Lives: Preventing Teen Suicide,” at the Park City High School Lecture Hall from 5:30-7:30PM.
For this study, the University is seeking two groups of adolescents: (1) those who have purposely hurt themselves or attempted suicide; and (2) adolescents who have never self-injured or struggled with emotional or behavioral problems. If you are a good fit for the study, you will be invited to the University of Utah to complete a lab visit. During your visit, an interviewer will ask you and your daughter about your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, personality, and mental health. All information gathered is strictly confidential.
Visits take approximately 2.5 to 3 hours and participants will be compensated up to $165 for their time. To ask questions, sign up, and/or start the screening process, please call: (801) 581-6412 or email: Utah.Teen.Emotion@
