In-Person Studies

Relationships, Social Situations, and Experiences with Stress

We are seeking volunteers to participate in a study examining how experiences in relationships and social situations influence responses to potentially stressful situations.

This study consists of two parts. First, participants will be asked to complete two questionnaires on Qualtrics, which will take less than 10 minutes.

Next, the in-person session will be conducted at Edgewood College in the Psychology Research Center (DOM 119), and will take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete. You will be asked to complete a simulated job interview, conducted by two panelists while being recorded and having your heart rate monitored. Afterward, you will be asked to describe a relationship in your life.\

All data will be kept strictly confidential. Participation in this study is completely voluntary and participants have the right to withdraw at any point during the study. The data collected in this study will potentially help further understanding of how experiences impact responses to potentially stressful situations. As a participant through the Psychology Research pool, you could potentially receive course credit or extra credit for participating or be entered into a drawing for a $25 Buy Local Dane gift card. In addition, you will be entered into a drawing by the study to receive 1 of 5 $10 gift cards.
