Social Interventions with Adolescents: A Survey

We invite you to be a part of a research study led by Tatianna Balis, Brittany Chamberlin, Paige Poole, Hailey Scandin, and Nicole Versace. We are students at Belmont University. Our faculty advisor is Dr. Tamara Lemmonds EdD, MSOT, OTR/L, OTD Program Director.

The purpose of this study is to look at what, if any, social skill intervention strategies are used with adolescents who are receiving occupational therapy services. This study will also look at how well you think the interventions work and what barriers they might have, if any, when using the interventions in practice.

You can be a part of this study if you are an Occupational Therapist or Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant that works with clients ages thirteen to twenty-one. If you choose to help us, you will complete an online survey. Filling out the survey should take about five to twenty minutes. The survey asks questions about social interventions you use. All of your information will be kept private.  Please do not write any identifying information on your survey.

Your help in this study is voluntary. If you choose to help, you are free to stop at any time, and you may skip any survey questions that you do not wish to answer. By clicking on the link below, you will be taken to a consent where you can indicate that you are willing to participate in this study. Our survey will then follow.  Please feel free to contact us if you have questions.
