Posted on 10/3/2016 1:12:12 PM

Ingrid Krecko, MA, from the Department of Psychology at IUP, is currently conducting a study of children’s emotion understanding using the Disney/Pixar film Inside Out. She is looking for children between the ages of eight and 12 to participate; parents are welcome to participate, but are not required.

Participation for children involves completing questionnaires, watching the movie Inside Out, and participating in a discussion about emotions. Parents also must fill out questionnaires.

Follow-up questionnaires will be given four weeks after the study. This is a group study that will be held on the IUP campus and will take approximately three hours. Laura Knight is the project advisor. Adult participants will each get a gift card, and child participants will receive a prize. All participants to complete the study will be entered into a drawing to win Inside Out on DVD.

If you would like to participate in this study, please call Ingrid Krecko at 724-357-4526 or e-mail IUPinsideout@gmail.com.

This project has been approved by the Indiana University of Pennsylvania Institutional Review Board for the protection of human subjects (phone 724-357-7730).
