If you’ve not participated in The University of Georgia‘s recent study of how parental communications affect adults, you’ve still a final chance.
Research project manager Valerie Coles emailed about giving adult children of narcissists (ACoNs) another opportunity to participate in the study. The short, simple survey will be open for participants up through June. (Bonus: Participants can enter their email address to get in a drawing for a $100 gift card.)
“The purpose of this study is to understand how parental communication impacts individuals once they are adults… This study is an assessment of a measure of parental narcissism. There is presently no published scale that measures parental narcissism behaviors from the perspective of the adult child. This study aims to further refine a measure of parental narcissism by targeting self-identified ‘Adult Children of Narcissists.'” (Dr. Jennifer Monahan and Valerie Coles)
In taking this survey, you participate in research about ACoNs, which, in the opinion of The Invisible Scar, is a very worthy reason for doing so. Not enough research has been done regarding adult survivors. This survey offers the opportunity to help raise awareness of ACoNs.
The researchers will be sharing the information with The Invisible Scar and other participating websites. And in turn, I’ll share the information with you.
