Subject: Deployment ResearchMy name is Jeffrey Geddes. I am a Captain in the US Air Force and a doctoral student at the University of North Texas. My advisor, Dr. Amy Murrell and I am currently conducting my doctoral dissertation research examining impact of deployment on children, protective factors that help them to cope with wartime separations and how parents who remain at home may be able to help protect children from experiencing negative effects.
The implications of this research could be huge. We may be able to identify some target factors that contribute to both positive and negative outcomes in children.
I came across your website/group, and wondered if you would be willing to post or e-mail a announcement, flyer, or link to the survey on your website to help to recruit people to complete the survey. The study would consist of parents logging on to a website and filling out a survey that could take 30-45 minutes. For security reasons the survey is password protected, therefore individuals would need to send an e-mail in order to receive the link and password to the survey (the e-mail is responded to immediately).
I have included an attachment of the recruitment announcement and recruitment flyer. Thank you for your help. Please let me know if you are able to offer any assistance.
