The COVID-19 Pandemic Adjustment Survey (CPAS) is a longitudinal research study investigating how Australian families are being affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The study aims to investigate the week-by-week impacts of social distancing and other measures introduced to control the spread of COVID-19. We know there are risks for those families living with chronic stress and social isolation. This study will aim to provide timely information and tools for successful clinical and public health interventions to support families during and after the pandemic.

We are currently seeking Australian parents of children aged 0-18 years to participate in our study. Participants will be required to complete an online survey asking questions about how you have adjusted to the COVID-19 pandemic, about your family relationships, and life circumstances.

This study is led by Dr Elizabeth Westrupp who is a senior lecturer and clinical psychologist in the School of Psychology within the Faculty of Health at Deakin University. The CPAS investigator team also includes Associate Professor Gery Karantzas, Dr Jacqui Macdonald, Associate Professor Emma Sciberras, Associate Professor Antonina Mikocka-Walus, Dr George Youssef, Dr Subhadra Evans, Dr Lisa Olive, Associate Professor Matthew Fuller-Tyszkiewicz, Dr Mathew Ling,  Associate Professor Delyse Hutchinson, Associate Professor Glenn Melvin, Emeritus Professor Robert Cummins, Dr Julian Fernando, Dr Sam Teague, Dr Jake Linardon, Professor Amanda Wood, Professor John Toumbourou, Professor Peter Enticott, and Professor Craig Olsson.
