Welcome to our volunteer research opportunity!

We hope you find your experience to be engaging and informative.

This study, designed by researchers at the University of Virginia Department of Psychology, examines how thoughts and emotions can influence one another. It takes about 20 minutes.

It consists of questionnaires on which you describe your current mood, a recall task, and several “thought periods” during which you will be asked to think about particular thoughts, which you may find unpleasant. For some participants, being asked questions about mood or thinking about unpleasant thoughts can be temporarily distressing. If you would prefer not to do this study, you can click here to be assigned to a new study.

You will receive feedback at the end and more detail about the study's rationale and design. To insure that you can receive the detailed study information even if the study is not completed for any reason, there will be an option to provide your email address. If provided, this address would be used only for a one-time e-mailing of the detail about this study.

It is important to note that participation in this study is voluntary, and you may end your participation at any time by closing the study window. Contact Prof. Bethany Teachman, bteachman@virginia.edu, if you have any questions about the study.
