Family Relationships and Child Emotions
You are being asked to be in a research study that focuses on your child, their feelings, and your family relationships. Researchers at Case Western Reserve University are conducting this study.

The purpose of this study is to learn about the family relationships of individuals whose children struggle with Social Anxiety, Selective Mutism, Separation Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD).
