More Research

This came across the transom today. Looks legit (IRB information, etc.), for those of you who have felt that not all of these requests are detailed enough:

Looking for participants to share their opinions and experiences on what it is like to be a stay-at-home dad.

Participants must fit the following criteria:

1.) have spent more than six months at home with their child or children;
2) work less than a full-time job or not at all;
3.) are the primary caregiver of their child or children.

Participants would be interviewed either face-to-face or over the phone. The interview would be held at the convenience of the respondent, and personal identity (and family) would be kept confidential. The interview will most likely last between 1-2 hours, but it can be shorter as well. The project has been approved by the Assumption College's Institutional Review Board (IRB), which is the College’s committee that ensures research is ethically sound. The IRB Chair is Amy Gazin-Schwartz, Ph.D. She can be reached at: 508-767-7224 or

Contacting other stay-at-home fathers about this project is appreciated as well.

Those interested in this research may contact the Principle Investigator, Steven Farough, Ph.D., by phone or email.
