Research Study of Bisexual Women's Experiences - please participate!! 
06:41pm 10/07/2011
mood: curious
I am a doctoral student in clinical psychology and am recruiting participants for my IRB-approved dissertation study on the experiences of bisexual women who are in exclusive romantic relationships (including marriages, civil unions and other partnerships). Please consider participating, if you or someone you know fits this description! Participation is via a secure online survey, is anonymous, and takes about 30 minutes, and participants can enter a survey to win one of three $25 gift cards. Here's the link; more information is below. 



Liz Clark, M.A.



My name is Elizabeth Clark and I am a doctoral student in clinical psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I am currently working on my dissertation under the supervision of Dr. Braden Berkey. My dissertation research seeks to increase our understanding of the experience of bisexual women who are in monogamous romantic relationships. Specifically, the study investigates bisexual women’s experiences of both stigma against and support for their bisexual identity, and explores possible links between experiences of stigma and mental health. Findings from this study will help mental health clinicians work with bisexual women in a more informed, culturally competent manner, and may also inform the development or improvement of policies and programs serving the bisexual community.

I am writing to ask you to participate in my dissertation research by responding to an online survey that can be accessed using the link below. As stated above, we are interested in the experiences of bisexual-identified adult women who are currently in a monogamous romantic relationship (including dating, marriages, civil unions, and other life partnerships). We are seeking a diverse group of respondents of varying race/ethnicity, level of education, socioeconomic status, and age. Everyone who takes the survey must be 18 years old or older. Please consider participating if you are eligible, and please feel free to forward this announcement to friends, loved ones, and colleagues who may be eligible.

If you choose to participate, no identifying information or names will be collected. Your name cannot be connected in any way to the responses you provide; responses are completely anonymous in this study. The researcher will store the data on a secure, encrypted computer drive. Only the researcher (Elizabeth Clark), advisor (Dr. Berkey), and a trained research assistant will have access to the data. 

There is a minimal risk of discomfort or anxiety due to the nature of the questions asked; however, you are free stop participation in the research at any time.

By participating in this survey, you are helping researchers better understand the experiences of bisexual women in relationships. Additionally, by telling us about your experiences, you are helping add to the body of research about bisexuality as distinct from gay or lesbian identity. The more research there is on bisexual identity and experience, the more recognition bisexuality is likely to receive from the field of psychology and from the general public. 

For the purposes of this study, the researcher asks that you or any respondent complete the study only one time.  The total time commitment is approximately 30 minutes, and the entire survey is completed online. After you complete the survey, you will have the opportunity to provide your email address if you would like to be entered into a drawing for one of three $25 Amazon.com gift cards. If you provide your email address, it is not linked in any way to your responses, which will remain anonymous.
If you would like to participate, please click the following link:

If you have any further questions about the study, you may contact the researcher, Elizabeth Clark, by email at eac6200@ego.thechicagoschool.edu or you may contact the researcher’s advisor, Dr. Braden Berkey, at bberkey@thechicagoschool.edu or 312.467.2351. 
If you have questions concerning your rights in this research study you may contact the Institutional Review Board (IRB), which is concerned with the protection of subjects in research projects. You may reach the IRB office Monday-Friday by calling 312.467.2343 or writing: Institutional Review Board,The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, 325 N. Wells, Chicago, Illinois, 60654.
