The QRC is often asked to pass along opportunities for LGBTQ students to participate in research studies from various institutions across the world. Most of these studies will hopefully provide useful research data about LGBTQ populations. We provide these links to these survey opportunities completely voluntarily for students to complete if they desire - participation in these is purely voluntary and at the students' discretion. Links and studies will be cycled out as they are received.
Please note: The QRC does not endorse or require anyone to participate in research studies that may be listed here in this newsletter or elsewhere online. Surveys and studies presented here are listed as a way to ensure that Queer voices are also heard in these kinds of studies. If you feel harmed by this research in any way please contact the IRB (Institutional Review Board) at the university in which the study is being done directly. If you have questions or concerns on the inclusivity of the questions or any other feedback directly related to the experience of doing the study send them to the primary investigator whose address is provided on the first page of the survey. Credible surveys should include contact information for both the Faculty member who is overseeing the study and that institution's IRB
for further follow up.
- My name is Stephanie Budge and I am currently working on a research project to study how therapy works for people who identify as trans* or transgender. Participation in this study consists of taking part in online surveys that ask questions about identity (for example, gender labels), how therapy is going, and how you have been feeling lately. Participation in this study also involves filling out a demographic questionnaire. To qualify for the study, participants must be age 18 or over, identify as trans*, transgender, or have gone through a gender transition. In addition, participants must plan to start therapy within two months of enrolling in the study and plan to continue being in therapy for at least 16 weeks. Interested participants who do not meet these criteria (who are already involved in therapy, for example) are not eligible to participate. This study has been approved by the University of Louisville IRB.
Trans* or transgender participants will be asked to jointly participate in this study with their therapists. This process will be explained in detail to all who are interested in participating. All interested participants will be given a chance to ask questions about the study, are not obligated to participate in the study, and can discontinue participation at any point in the study with no penalty or loss of benefits to which they are entitled. All study participants and their therapists will be provided with monetary compensation for their time involved in study participation.
The information collected may or may not benefit you directly; however, you will have the opportunity to talk about your experience in therapy and how you feel it impacts your life. Some people may find this to be helpful. Additionally, the information learned in this study may be helpful to others in identifying psychotherapeutic processes and outcomes as they may relate to improving psychological training or therapy processes.If you are interested in being a part of this study, or if you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Budge at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (502) 852-0627.
