Sexual Confidence Study

Description: This study is a randomized control trial that seeks to test the efficacy of a novel form of online psychotherapy to treat social anxiety in HIV-negative men who have sex with men. Participants who are eligible will receive 12 online psychotherapy sessions to better manage their social anxiety, substance use, and sexual HIV risk behaviour. We hypothesize that participants will experience reduced sexual risk behaviour, reductions in social anxiety symptoms, and will reduce substance use in sexual situations. Participants will complete a baseline assessment consisting of 1) an online questionnaire about mental health, substance use, and sexual health, 2) an online interview with a clinician about mental health and substance use, and 3) in-person HIV and STI testing with a research nurse. If you choose to participate in this study, you will be asked to attend in-person STI testing appointments up to 4 times throughout the study at our laboratory located at Toronto Metropolitan University. Participants may be eligible to receive up to $380 in compensation for their time. For more information and/or if you wish to participate, please contact us over email at sexual.confidence@torontomu.ca or call 416-979-5000 ext. 552179.

Coming In after Coming Out: Clinician Perspectives on Masculinity Identity in Adolescent Gay Men.

Description: This qualitative case study explores how clinician perspectives of gay men has evolved since the mid-twentieth century when homosexuality was pathologised by psychiatry and psychologists as a mental disorder. While there are a number of studies focusing on adult gay men and hegemonic masculinity, there are very few studies focusing on adolescent gay men and what role hegemonic masculinity plays in their development. Clinicians are uniquely positioned in their work with adolescent gay men to provide ongoing, evidence-based treatment while simultaneously providing a rare space for them to open up about their experiences. The primary research question focuses on the how clinicians experience and interpret how cis-gendered adolescent gay men aged 13-18 relate to hegemonic masculinity in Canada. Secondary questions include, (1) How has this interpretation influenced your case conceptualisation of cis-gendered adolescent gay men aged 13-18? and (2) How has the construct of hegemonic masculinity influenced your view of cis-gendered adolescent gay men aged 13-18?

Study Population:
Licensed clinicians (psychologist, psychological associate, psychotherapist) living and working in Canada. Clinicians must have worked with adolescent gay men for 2+ years, but do not need to identify as LGBTQ2S+ themselves.

Participant Obligation:
Screening interview to determine eligibility. Eligible participants will be invited to a one-time 60-90 minute individual interview on Microsoft Teams to discuss their experiences, which will be audio recorded.

All participants who complete interviews will be provided with a $20 giftcard to Starbucks as a token of appreciation.

Exploring Mental Health Professionals’ Views and Competency Responding to Suicidality in People with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD)

Description: The present study seeks to explore the self-perceived levels of competency mental health professionals (MHPs) have when working with individuals with FASD who are suicidal. Additionally, this study aims to explore whether and how MHPs' knowledge and attitudes about FASD impact their perceived competency to assess and manage suicidality when working with people with FASD. Lastly, this study also aims to explore the current practices that are employed by MHPs when they are working with people with FASD who are suicidal. The present study aims to contribute to a growing body of research geared towards understanding and developing suicide assessment, intervention, and prevention efforts specific to individuals with FASD. MHPs across Canada are invited to complete an anonymous short survey (~10-15 minutes) to explore their 1) self-perceived competency to assess and treat suicidality in individuals with FASD, 2) knowledge and attitudes about FASD, and 3) current practices when working with suicidal people with FASD.

Stimulus Control Smoking Study

Description: The purpose of the research study is to understand (1) the feasibility of having individuals smoke their own cigarette in a controlled way, and (2) understand the impact of smoking a cigarette in a controlled way on one’s experience of smoking and reactions to smoking. There will be two in-person appointments booked (one for the experimental condition and one for the control) once the participant has been found eligible. Surveys will be completed prior to and after the experiments to determine the participant's demographics, smoking habits and perceptions (e.g., how many times have you tried to quit smoking cigarettes? How many cigarettes a day do you smoke?) If you choose to participate in this study, we will ask you to complete two 1-hour appointments in our laboratory on the Toronto Metropolitan University Campus. During these appointments, we will ask you a variety of questions about your background and experiences with substances.

Study Population:
34 participants are expected to participate. We are looking for adults who are 19+, are able to attend in-person appointments, who smoke cigarettes regularly (but not daily), and who are not pregnant, attempting to conceive, chest feeding or nursing.

Participant Obligation:
Two 1-hour in-person appointments. You will be asked to smoke into a device (preferably with your own cigarette) that measures puffing patterns. Participants are asked to abstain from substance use for up to 12hrs prior to the appointment.

Predictors of Alcohol use and Consequences in Transgender (PACT) Adults Study

Description: The purpose of the research study is to better understand (1) factors that affect alcohol use among transgender adults who drink, and (2) harms associated with this alcohol use. If you choose to participate in this study, you will be asked to complete an online Baseline Session over a video call, which will include completing a survey with the platform Qualtrics. This Baseline Session and Qualtrics survey will mostly focus on brief demographic information, hormone therapy, stage in transition (social, physical, and/or legal), as well as more detailed measures of mental health and alcohol and other substance use (nicotine, cannabis, other drugs). Afterwards, over 21 days, you will be asked to complete surveys on a smartphone at various times each day. These surveys will mostly assess your alcohol and other substance use, and any related outcomes/experiences. Finally, you will be asked to complete an Exit Survey using Qualtrics. This survey will mostly ask for feedback about your experiences in the study.

Study Population:
Adults who live in Canada, are of legal drinking age in the province/territory they reside (i.e. 18-19+), who identify as trans and/or under the trans umbrella (e.g., non-binary, genderfluid, agender, etc.), and drink alcohol regularly are welcome.
