Maureen Perry-Jenkins

Maureen worked with the PAIR Project for three years; together with   Shelley MacDermid, she set up all the systems files for the interview and telephone data. She also published several papers in conjunction with the Project:

Crouter, Perry-Jenkins, Huston, & Crawford (1989).

Crouter, Perry-Jenkins, Huston, & McHale (1987).

Maureen is currently an associate professor of family Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She is beginning the third year of a five year project funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. The project focuses on working class families who are experiencing the transition to parenthood and early return to paid employment, and how they cope with these multiple transitions. In this project, Maureen says, "I am using much of the methodology and the measures that I learned about in PAIR!"
