Participate in Research
Parental Nurturance in Childhood and Adolescence Correlated to Anxiety in College Students: As an undergraduate student in the Department of Psychology at Liberty University, I am conducting research to better understand parent-child relationships and anxiety in college students. The purpose of my research is to determine if there is a correlation between college students’ anxiety and the degree of parental nurturance that they received in childhood and adolescence, and I am writing to invite you to participate in my study.
Attitude toward counseling: You are invited to participate in research being done to better understand the attitudes and stigma people have towards going to counseling. If you are 18 years of age or older, enrolled in a residential undergraduate psychology class, are willing to participate, and you have a parent who is also willing to participate, then you and your parent will be asked to each take a survey. Thank you for considering your participation in a study that may lead to greater understanding of a key barrier to treatment!
