Welcome to the Couples Study Website!
This research study explores how African American couples' interpersonal interactions influence their lives. Dr. Tracy DeHart, a social psychologist at Loyola University Chicago, and Dr. Anthony Burrow, a developmental psychologist at Cornell University, are the principal investigators of this research project which is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
We are currently recruiting a community-based sample of 75 African American couples from the greater Chicagoland area to participate in our study. Our research project depends upon the dedicated participation of each and every couple in our study. This website was developed to provide more information to couples who may be interested in joining our study. In addition, as we publish results from our research study, we will make them available on this website.
Thank you, couples!
Our research team is always thinking about you. We realize how busy everyone is and we really appreciate you taking time out of your busy lives to participate in our study.
