Joyful Together

Joyful Together®

Joyful Together® is a play-based model that we’ve developed to help strengthen relationships between children and their caregivers.

Joy at Home: Activities for Families

With social distancing the norm and schools shut down due to COVID-19, we wanted to provide caretakers with simple, fun, everyday activities. These Joyful Together® activities infuse joy into everyday interactions between caretakers and children. We also wanted to highlight some Joyful activities specifically for dads. So we’re celebrating #JoyAtHomeWithDad Week and asking dads to share their joy!

Like and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to see all the Joyful activities as we share them!


Father’s Feelings Study

This study gives dads with children 12 months old or younger an opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings about their babies and their lives as parents.

Currently, all our studies are being conducted virtually. We do this through videoconferencing for each study visit and online forms available through our Research Portal.


Internship Opportunity!

We’re looking for Institute Scholar Assistants. Come join us today!
