The University of Arkansas-Monticello's psychology and social work departments are collaborating to conduct a study on maternal beliefs and attitudes associated with child behavior.
Alyssa Vougas, instructor
of social work, and Rick Clubb, associate professor of
psychology, have teamed up to conduct the one-time study.
"The study contributes to the knowledge base about the relationships between mothers' parenting beliefs and children's behaviors," Vougas said. "Even though we're not able to pay the participants, [the study] is beneficial because the participants have a chance to learn a lot about the research process, which is an invaluable learning experience in itself."
Any interested participants
are encouraged to contact Vougas to discuss the study,
answer any questions, and schedule a time for the study.
Vougas can be reached at 460-1187 or
The tentative deadline to volunteer is March 1.
