					Empirical projects
   Do a mini-empirical study
    –   Wrestle with doing research
   Write-up
    –   Intro, methods, results, discussion
   Be clear about the limitations of the mini-
    study
Empirical project is not your final
project
   Empirical project is a part of your final project
   Final project will consist of literature review and
    empirical project will be like another study in your
    review
   Your poster and oral presentation final project
    incorporate your empirical project and all the
    literature you have summarized
   Empirical project is a part of final project
Structure
   Intro
    –   Don’t call for further research here
   Methods
    –   How you did the study (not what you found)
   Results
    –   Everything you found
            Attachment, depression,
    –   Make a table of these results
            Each baby is a row
   Discussion of results
    –   How results relate to literature
    –   Limitations
Empirical component
   Observe reality
    –   Write up your observations
    –   500 words
   Structure
    –   Why I decided to observe what I observed
    –   What I saw
    –   What I learned about what I am studying
Goal
 Minimum: Familiarize yourself with the
  empirical phenomenon that you are
  studying for your final project
 Maximum: Conduct a mini-study of the
  area you are studying for your final project
Example
   Many are interested in attachment, what predicts it
    and what it predicts
   Watch some strange situations in which
    attachment is assessed
   Watch some play episodes that might be used to
    predict attachment or some behaviors that might
    be predicted from attachment
   Write a description of what you see and what
    you’ve learned from the experience
So
 The basic idea is just to get a sense of the
  phenomenon about which you will be
  writing your final topic
 I can help you find these resources but you
  must take the responsibility and make a firm
  plan with me
 The next page contains some resources that
  I have access to
How to watch videos
 Qualitative description is ok but its even
  better if it leads to coding of specific
  behaviors
 Which means counting them,
 Which means you can present quantitative
  results
Proposal
   Propose your empirical project (200 words).
   Should indicate
     – who your subjects will be,
     – what you will be studying,
     – and how you plan to measure what you are
       studying.
   Extra credit if you submit first draft of empirical
    project data by this date:
Research Resources
–   One infant longitudinal (0 - 3 years)
–   13 infants 9-15 months playing at table
–   Jackson infants
        Brazelton, feed, face-to-face, exploration, play, attachment
–   CG infants
        Face-to-face interactions, labeling, attachment, Bayleys
–   Monkey Jungle
        Gender, coordination and bidding
–   Something you find (other research)
DVDs

   4, 6, 8 month ftf/sf
   ESCS 8 10 12 15 18 month
    –   Interaction with child
   15 18 36 month strange situation and 10 minute
    play
   24 30 36 month toddler-mother play
    –   And other autism specific assessments, intelligence etc
Videos

   2 tapes. 1 kid on each tape.
   Each tape contains:
   4month ftf-sf
   18 month Strange situation and 10- minute play
   36 month strange situation and 10 minute play
   48 month interaction, mother still, mother plays
    again
   60 months separation-reunion
