Learn more about the Family & Development Lab!

The Family & Development Lab at Providence College—under the direction of Dr. Kelly Warmuth, Assistant Professor of Psychology—is currently recruiting families for a study exploring how family relationships influence child development.


If you choose to participate, you, your spouse or partner, and your child will be asked to visit our lab (151 Sowa Hall on the Providence College campus). Each visit takes about 2–3 hours. You and your spouse or partner will be asked to fill out questionnaires about family relations and participate in a discussion about common disagreements in your relationship. Portions of the visit will be videotaped.

Your child will also be participating! Your child will be given story stems to finish, answer questions about your family, and play games with student researchers. Your child will be given a small toy for participating.

Your family will earn $50 for completing this visit with the potential for another $20 in a year if you agree to fill out some online questionnaires which will allow us to see what has changed for your family. In order to make these visits as easy as possible for your family, we schedule visits 7 days a week, including weeknights and any time on the weekends, and offer complimentary child care during your visit for your other kiddos!
