KFP: Kids and Family Project
The Kids and Family Project is a longitudinal study investigating the risk and protective factors for mental health adjustment in 1st and 2nd generation Chinese American immigrant children. The primary goals of this study are: (1) to study the overall development and individual differences in Chinese American immigrant children’s mental health adjustment, academic and socio-emotional competence; and (2) to identify what contextual factors place some Chinese American children at risk for maladjustment and what factors can promote psychological wellbeing and competence in this population. 

Since January 2008, 258 families have participated in this study, and we have collected (and published the findings of) two waves of data.
