Job Summary

Child Adult Relationship Enhancement in Pediatric Primary Care (PriCARE) is a group caregiver training program for caregivers of children ages 2-6 who have some behavioral problems. The main goals of the program are to teach these parents ways to improve their parent-child relationship while also improving their child’s behaviors. Many of our parents are single parents with limited resources. In order to help address possible barriers to attendance, during the in-person sessions within the primary care clinic we provide on-site childcare for kids ages 2-10, SEPTA tokens for transportation reimbursement, and food. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this intervention has been converted for virtual delivery via a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform.

To date, CHOP has only facilitated PriCARE groups in English; however, we have recently translated and culturally adapted our curriculum in order to provide these sessions to Spanish-speaking families. Each group is 6 weeks long and meets once a week for 6 consecutive weeks. Each session is 1-1.5 hours and are offered during the week either midday or at night.

This is a Part time Research Assistant position offered through PolicyLab and the Division of General Pediatrics at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The Bilingual Research Assistant position will assist the Principal Investigator and more senior study staff in activities related to PriCARE, a parenting intervention for parents of children with behavioral problems. Responsibilities of the research assistant will include: 1) recruitment of caregivers, 2) data collection, 3) data entry, and 4) provision of technical support during the virtual delivery of the intervention. The research assistant will also perform additional research study or administrative tasks as assigned, which may include literature searches, article retrievals, data abstraction, survey and instrument development. The Research Assistant will participate in research project related meetings with the Principal Investigator, Research Coordinator, and research team to gain a better understanding of protocol issues and project developments.


  1. Enroll subjects into the clinical studies and intervention.
  2. Conduct in-person, phone, or videoconference interviews of subjects.
  3. Provide technical and coordination support for study visits and the intervention sessions.
