University of Pittsburgh researchers, led by Dr. Edward Mulvey, PhD, Director of the Law and Psychiatry Program at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, are in the process of developing educational materials to help families manage serious conflict situations. They are looking for families with a loved one between the ages of 18-60 who is living with mental illness (schizophrenia spectrum or other psychotic disorders, depression, or bipolar disorder) and who has been involved in a physically-violent incident in the past six months. The study involves an interview with this individual and with a person who was involved in or helped to manage the incident. Learning about these events will enable researchers to understand what helps to calm these situations and what things make them worse. Compensation of $50 is provided to each party. To learn more, contact Carol Schubert by phone at 412-647-4760 or by email at email@example.com.
