Research on Traits of a Healthy Family- Your Help Requested  

Dear NARME Member:

 

I am Dr. Cheryl Robinson, Professor in Child and Family Studies in the School of Education at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I am conducting a research study to compare the findings of Delores Curran's 1980 study on the traits of a healthy family with what family professionals see as the traits of a healthy family today. Mrs. Curran, a journalist, distributed a survey to family professionals in 1980 asking that they choose from a list, the traits they considered most often contributed to making a healthy family. 


 

Her study was unique because she sent out 500 surveys and she received 551 back. Professionals were so enthusiastic about her study that they photocopied the survey and gave it to other professionals who had not received the original. I specifically want to look at what has and has not changed in regards to creating and maintaining a healthy family.


 

I am requesting your participation, which will involve thoughtfully completing the included survey and returning it to me via email by June 30, 2015.Your participation in this study is voluntary. If you choose not to participate or to withdraw from the study at anytime, there will be no penalty.


 

The results of the research study may be published, but your name will not be used. The surveys will be protected by maintaining them in a locked cabinet in the office of the principal investigator until the research is complete and then they will be destroyed. If you have any questions concerning the research study, or the confidentiality of the surveys, please call me at 423-425-1729 or e-mail me at cheryl-robinson@utc.edu.


 

This research has been approved by the UTC Institutional Review Board (IRB). If you have any questions concerning the UTC IRB policies or procedures or your rights as a human subject, please contact Dr. Bart Weathington, IRB Committee Chair, at (423) 425-4289 or email instrb@utc.edu.


 

Return of the questionnaire will be considered your consent to participate. Thank you.
