Twins Family and Behaviour Study (TFaB)

A research project exploring children's adjustment and family relationships with the help of 284 families with twins born across the UK.

Originally run as part of the Nurture Lab when it was based in Sussex (2012-2017), TFaB is a longitudinal study of young twins.

Team

Principal Investigator

Co-Investigator

Collaborators

  • Dr Katie Mark (King’s College London)
  • Dr Rachel Latham (King's College London)
Background

Over a four year period, participating parents kindly completed questionnaires, a telephone interview, and a parent-child interactive game online. 

We have published some findings already, and still have lots to learn from the data.

Secondary analyses opportunities are available.

See more information about the TFaB project on IRIS research portal.

Methodology

With the help of TFaB families, we designed a new methodology that provides researchers and practitioners the means to study family relationships in depth (ESO; Oliver & Pike, 2019). 

This methodology allows us to 'visit' families in their own homes, without the need for in-person home visits.
