Simulated Online Interview

Transitioning from adolescence to early adulthood is associated with various challenges and stressful life events that can affect one’s physical and mental well-being. The Social Health Lab is currently recruiting young adults, between the ages of 19 and 25, and is assessing their responses to an online mock job interview. Interested individuals will first be asked to complete a 5-10 minute survey that will assess their eligibility for participating in the mock job interview. If deemed eligible, participants will be invited to a Zoom session during which they will complete a mock job interview, answer some questionnaires, complete another brief interview, and provide saliva samples.

Family Sleep Study

Infant sleep is one of the largest concerns reported by new parents. My collaborators and I are investigating the relationship between family dynamics, sleep, and scent. Our goal is to improve sleep for infants, and as a consequence sleep for the entire family.To learn more or express interest in participating, visit our website: https://blogs.ubc.ca/infantsleepstudy/

Teen Health and Emotions

The teenage years can be a confusing and challenging time for a variety of biological, psychological, and social reasons. The Social Health Lab is investigating how hormonal changes during adolescence can affect teenagers’ emotions, social interactions, and mental health in a longitudinal study over the course of three years. We are currently recruiting young women ages 13 to 15 to participate in the study, which will involve completing a series of online tasks and the collection of saliva samples to measure levels of hormones. All procedures can be completed remotely, from your home.
