As we are a psychology lab, we are always looking for participants to join us in our research. If you would like to participate, please let us know!

In order to help you decide whether participating in research is right for you, we have answered the following common questions you may have, below:

i. What does participation entail?

ii. What are the benefits?

iii. How do I participate?

Note: Currently, we are not recruiting new participants.


i. What does participation entail?

Typically, participation in our research involves your reflection on matters pertaining to your mental health in order to answer a series of questions, either in interview or survey format. Participants are typically drawn from attendees to our workshops, who indicate their interest in participating in research with us in order to receive reduced rates for our workshops.

However, the exact nature of your participation in our research will change depending on what particular study you are involved with.

To learn more, see our ongoing studies page.


ii. What are the benefits?

There are several benefits of participating in our research, including the following:

  1. All of our participants are monetarily compensated (the exact rate of compensation for any given study can be found within its listing on our ongoing studies page).

  2. The nature of our research will have you introspect and reflect on matters of critical importance to your well-being, which may have the effect of evoking insight into, or helping you to better mentally organize and understand, your life’s circumstances. Participating in our research can feel rewarding, or even fun!

  3. We work to accommodate your needs, by tailoring the ways in which you participate to them.

  4. In addition to your personal gain, you will also become a part of important work in improving mental health; therapeutic insights gained in research in which you have have participated may someday help to more effectively treat the mental health challenges of others.
