I WILL CONTINUE TO SEND MORE INFO AS I GET IT. THIS IS THEIR LETTER IN RESPONSE TO MY INQUIRY.
The Center for Attachment Research at the New School is engaged in the application of attachment theory to clinical and developmental research questions concerning child, parent, and family development.
We are about to begin a new line of research and would like to invite you and your family to become involved. The study intends to explore child and family development in a group of children who were conceived through assisted reproduction. There is little known about the emotional and social development of children conceived through assisted reproduction, and we are searching for participants to help us build knowledge in the hopes of benefitting those who may utilize assisted reproduction the future.
We are specifically looking at the relationship between parents and their six to eight year old children who were conceived through egg donation. This study involves one visit to our Child Development facility at the Center for Attachment Research at the New School for Social Research at 80 Fifth Avenue in New York City. As part of this study, families would participate in a series of assessments that will focus on aspects of child development and the parent-child relationship. All of these assessments have been specifically designed to be of interest to the children and the families. We are especially focused on learning from you by using state of the art measures that will help us better understand the strengths and challenges unique to each family.
In return for contributing to a greater understanding of parent and child relationships following assisted reproduction, parents will receive a DVD highlighting their experience with their child at the Center for Attachment Research.
