Project Description: 

Research Assistants (RAs) will assess the quality of delivery of Bridges program parent sessions. This will involve watching videos of parent program sessions (which may be done at home on a password protected video portal that can be accessed via computer) and applying a coding system to assess group facilitators’ delivery of the program. Students will meet weekly or every other week for 2 hours to review and discuss their evaluations of sessions and to achieve consensus when there is disagreement among RAs about how well sessions were delivered. Students interested in participating may sign up for course credit through Psychology or School of Social and Family Dynamics. This experience will give students exposure to an evidence-based curriculum for a universal preventive intervention for middle school students and their families and the opportunity to learn about interrater reliability in observational coding, which will be great experience for graduate school.
