Dear Parents and Students,
I am conducting a research study to better understand the scope and effects of bullying on children adopted into transracial families. As a Social Work faculty member at Northeastern State University, I am interested in understanding this topic so that we can develop effective supports and interventions for children/adoptees who experience bullying based on racial or ethnic differences. I am requesting your participation because it will help us to do this.
Your participation is voluntary and your responses are anonymous. Neither I nor anyone else will be able to identify from whom any completed questionnaire came.
It will take about 30-40 minutes to complete our survey. You will make an important contribution to this project that may lead to creating effective help for trans-racial adoptees who are facing school bullying.
The value of this study’s results will depend on how many participants choose to respond.
If you wish to discuss the information above or concern you may have with this project, please do not hesitate to contact me, Eun-Jun Bang, Ph.D., MSW, at (918) 449-6564. For questions about your rights while participating in this study, you may contact the Institutional Review Board at Northeastern State University at (918) 456-5511 ext 2965.
Thank you so much for your attention and time.
