The University of Saskatchewan needs men who have a chronic illness and who are interested in volunteering for a research study. The following letter from Tara Storie, Graduate Student Department of Educational Psychology and Special Education, is your invitation to participate.
Hello CAPA Members,
I am a graduate student at the University of Saskatchewan, in the School and Counselling Psychology program. I am searching for men 18 years of age or older, who have been diagnosed with a chronic illness at least two years ago, and who are interested in volunteering to participate in a study about creative behaviour and chronic illness. This project is a part of my thesis research to obtain a Masters of Education.
The purpose of the study is to explore the relationship between creative behaviour and stress. If you agree to participate in this study, you will be asked to complete an online survey containing questions about your background, your personal attitudes, your feelings towards various situations, and your involvement in creative activities. Depending on how many creative activities you participate in, it will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete the survey. The survey will be available online at https://survey.usask.ca/survey.php?sid=15430
If you wish to learn more about this study or have any questions or comments about this study, please feel free to contact me at 966 – 5263 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or my faculty advisor, Dr. Jennifer Nicol at 306 966-5261 or email@example.com.
