[06/26/16]   Call for Research Participants 2016
C. Tyia Grange Isaacson, LCSW, Ph.D Candidate lic # 23716

About the Study:
I am researching the impact a “fussy” or “colicky” baby has on families and the parent child relationship for my dissertation. Did you know that colic does not exist in some cultures? I am looking for those families who had babies that cried frequently with more intensity and were harder to settle. Typically colic can be defined as babies who cried for 3 hours per day 3 days per week for more than 3 weeks. Starting in July, I am conducting interviews with parents that will take 1 hour and will be arranged at the participants convenience.

About the researcher:
I am an Licensed Clinical Social Worker in practice since 1998 and I am studying colic for my Ph.D dissertation because I was a colicky baby and I had my own colicky baby. I know firsthand as a mother and as a clinician that those very difficult first few months can have an impact on a family that lives on long after the crying stops. I want to talk with parents of colicky or formerly colicky babies across the life span (adult children too). My hope is that we can learn something from our collective experiences and help future families suffer less.

Confidentiality:
These conversations will be kept confidential and any identifying information incorporated into the dissertation will be changed to protect confidentiality. Please forward this to anyone you know how might be willing to speak with me.
[email protected] or call 510.343.9832 or toll free 800.383.1790. Thank you!

[12/05/15]   Rabbi Hugo Gryn recalled the dark days of living through the winter in a concentration camp during the Shoah: "My father took me and some friends to a corner in the barracks. He announced that it was the eve of Hanukkah and produced a small clay bowl. Then he began to light a wick immersed in his precious but now melted margarine ration. Before he could recite the blessing, I protested at this waste of food. He looked at me, then the lamp, and finally said, 'You and I have seen that it is possible to live up to three weeks without food. We once lived almost three days without water. But you cannot live properly for three minutes without hope.'"
