Researchers from Palo Alto University are conducting a study to evaluate the impact of Camp Okizu Bereavement camp for adolescents (13-20’s) who have lost a sibling. If you choose to participate, a researcher will contact you via telephone or e-mail to schedule an interview. A parent will complete a demographic questionnaire as well as psychological measures about their adolescent. It will take 5-15 minutes to complete their set of measures twice (before and 3 months after camp). The adolescent will be asked questions about him/herself, in the form of self-report measures for their quality of life, and psychosocial functioning and emotional wellbeing. It will take 40-60 minutes to complete their set of measures twice (before and 3 months after camp). The researchers will either conduct the surveys via teleconference (phone or Skype), or email your family a link to the online questionnaires.
For every completed set of surveys, participants will be entered into a raffle to win a $100 gift card at the end of the study.
If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact the researchers at: CampOkizuSiblingStudy@gmail.com or 949-385-2844 and let them know which form of survey you would prefer (online, over the phone, via skype, or by mail).
