My name is Blake MacGowan and Iâm a Masterâs Student from the University of Saskatchewan conducting research under the supervision of Dr. Brian Chartier. Iâm looking for participants for my study on attachment style and coping with romantic relationship loss. The title of the study is When a Relationship Ends: The role of attachment in romantic relationship loss. If you decide to participate in this study you will be asked to complete a questionnaire packet and a list of demographic questions. The questionnaires will assess emotional experiences, coping behaviours, and your relationship with your former romantic partner before the relationship ended. The information that you provide will be used to help further our understanding experiences and factors related to coping with romantic loss.
Participation takes approximately 30 minutes and will enter you into a draw for an iPod Nano. It is a great way to see what psychology research is like, help the advancement of research on relationships and potentially win an iPod Nano.
I must stress though that while this does result in being entered into a draw, participation in this study is strictly on a voluntary basis. Also should at any point during the study you choose to rescind your consent you may do so without any penalty. The study requires participants to answer several questions about their former romantic relationship, their daily activities, and the participantsâ experiences following the loss.
Any individual who has had a significant other end their romantic relationship in the past year are encouraged to participate. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. There are no participation restrictions on the basis of gender or culture This study has been reviewed and approved by the Behavioural Research Ethics Board (REB). If there are any further questions with regards to the study please feel free to contact me (Blake MacGowan) at email@example.com or my supervisor (Dr. Brian Chartier) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
