Participants Needed for Paid Psychology Skill-Building Study (Earn Up to $35)

submitted by schacht5@augsburg.edu

This research study (IRB #: 2022-32-03) is designed to compare two different skill-building training programs that may help college students develop adjustment-related skills. You are eligible to participate if you are a current Augsburg undergraduate student.

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to come to our Augsburg Psychology
research laboratory for 4 sessions over the course of one month. The sessions include an initial orientation meeting and three sessions focused on one of two skills-building programs (you will be randomly assigned to one of the two–like a flip of a coin). Both programs involve mini-informational videos as well as experiential activities for you to
complete. We will also have you complete a few personality measures. You will be assigned a peer coach who will work with you as progress through the study and guide you through the study components. Each of the sessions will last approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Finally, we will check in one last time 3-months after the study is over for a brief online survey.

Participants will receive up to $35 for their participation. $5 for each of the first three sessions, and $10 for both the fourth session and the 3 month follow-up. Alternatively, Augsburg University Psychology students will receive up to $25 and 4 research credits.

To participate, please complete this participant inquiry form: https://tinyurl.com/Skill-Building

The researchers conducting this study are part of the Identity and Well-being Research Lab at Augsburg University (iwellLab@augsburg.edu or 612-656-6560), directed by Dr. Alex Ajayi, Assistant Professor of Psychology (E-mail: ajayi@augsburg.edu, Phone: 612-330-1146).
