Seeking research participants

Aug 2015

My name is Molly Coxon and I am a 5th year Clinical Psychology doctoral student at William James College. I am writing to request your assistance in finding participants for my doctoral research. The primary aim of the study is to explore what clinicians perceive as the risks and benefits of therapist religious self-disclosures and their impact on working alliance.

You are eligible to participate in this study if you:

1. Are a mental health professional with at least a Master’s degree in a clinical mental health field. This includes:

a. Fully licensed clinicians (psychiatrist, psychologist, LICSW, LMHC, etc.)
b. credentialed clinicians working under a supervisor’s license

2. Are currently working within the United States of America.

Participation in this study will entail completing an online survey. The survey involves reading a short case vignette, answering questions related to the vignette and completing a short demographic form. Participation in the survey should take around 20 minutes. There is an opportunity to enter a raffle to win one of six $25 gift cards.

Please find below the link to my survey. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I am not a clinician. I just would like to represent that if you believe religious disclosures are harmful to their patients that you also consider that non religious disclosures are the same as religious disclosures.

Patients must learn how to differentiate between themselves and other people or they will have personality disorders.

If a patient cannot differentiate between his clinicians religious or non religious beliefs, action should be taken to help them distance themselves emotionally from their clinician as well as other people.

Patients are notoriously impressionable and vulnerable, and a clinicians job is very difficult.

Of course the clinician has no business pressing any of his religious or not beliefs on the patient. That goes without saying.
