Teens sought for research project about emotions, pain

teen-studyVANCOUVER, Wash. – Teens ages 14-18 in the Vancouver area are invited to earn $40 in gift cards for participating in a study about how positive emotions affect pain in healthy teens. Parents would get $10 in gift cards to help cover transportation.

Participants should be healthy and not subject to chronic pain.

Teens will complete surveys about academic experiences, pain experiences, mood, optimism and life satisfaction. They will conduct three positive activities on a specific day and report about it. Participants will be asked to put a hand in cold water for as long as possible.

To take part or get more information, contact Sean Rice or Jessica Fales in the WSU Vancouver Adolescent Health and Wellness Lab at health.research@wsu.edu or 360-546-9437.
