Description: This study will be updating research describing the scope of practice of current school psychologists to gather insight on their role, current challenges, and aspirations as a school psychologist in 2020-2021. School psychologists will be asked to provide demographic information (e.g., gender, years of practice, etc) first, and then will be asked to provide information about their roles, challenges, and aspirations as a school psychologist by filling out a 25-30 minute survey. For example, they will be asked to provide an approximation of the amount of time they spend in various tasks (e.g., “Please check the percentage of time spent providing the following services”), as well as how much time they wish they were spending on those services to provide a thorough understanding of their current role.
Specifics: Study Population: The targeted study population is current, practicing school psychologists from any part of Canada.
Participant Obligation: Participants will be asked to fill in a 25-30 minute survey describing their experiences as practicing school psychologists; no other follow-up will be required.
Location: Online - Calgary, Alberta

Description: The purpose of this research project is to determine the impact of social media and cell phone use on relationship satisfaction, and various associated characteristics. Currently, there is a lack of literature examining how these factors are affected by social media and cell phone use. Deprivation of this knowledge is causing individuals to disturb their relationship with their partner and negatively affect their mental wellbeing without the realization that they’re doing so. By conducting this study, people can adjust the amount of time spent on social media and their cell phone to enhance their relationship and wellbeing. Insight into the consequences of extreme cell phone use will be acquired by calculating the results of the survey to show how levels of relationship and life satisfaction, social comparison, self-esteem, jealousy, attachment style, and loneliness differ according to the amount of time spent online. Furthermore, by distinguishing how social media and cell phone use influences relationship and life satisfaction, social comparison, self-esteem, jealousy, attachment styles, and loneliness, a better understanding of the consequences of increased time spent online can be achieved.
Specifics: Study Population:
This study involves Canadian participants between the ages of 18 and 21 who are currently in a relationship or actively dating. The relationships do not need to be monogamous and dating does not have to be with the same person.
Participants must provide consent before participating in the research survey. Participants must also be between the ages of 18 and 21 and either currently involved in a relationship or actively dating. The relationship does not need to be monogamous

Description: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, health care workers face highly stressful and rapidly changing work environments. Mental health concerns in the population have also increased (e.g., isolation, anxiety, substance use), but accessing mental health services is more difficult. Mental health clinicians face increased demands and substantial stress; it is critical to understand their experiences to ensure the availability of high-quality services, including those using telehealth technologies like videoconferencing. This study uses online surveys in 6 languages (including French and English) to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on clinical practice and well-being of global mental health professionals. Surveys will be implemented at three time points to asses changes over time; the first has been completed. Participants will be members of the World Health Organization’s Global Clinical Practice Network, including 15,500 mental health clinicians from 159 countries. The study assesses: 1) Effects of COVID-19 on work circumstances and services provided; 2) Work-related stress and distress; 3) Use of telehealth services and related concerns; and 4) Expectations, resource needs, and recommendations. Results will inform clinical and health system management and public health response. Findings will be crucial for developing policies to protect the mental health workforce in Canada.
Specifics: Study Population:
Seeking registered psychologists in Canada. Participants are asked to join the Global Clinical Practice Network (GCPN; website link below).
Once a GCPN profile is set up, in October 2020 and March 2021, members will be invited via email to participate in a 30-minute COVID-19 survey. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Description: The primary aim of the proposed study is to examine the complex interplay between multiple self, peer, and family variables relative to the development of anxiety symptoms in females. The literature has provided an abundance of evidence to suggest that anxiety related issues and symptoms in adolescence predominately reside in females. Due to these sex differences in anxiety symptom severity during this developmental period, the current study aims to focus on examining the abovementioned variables in a female population. The rationale for developing the proposed model is based on bodies of literature, including (1) developmental psychopathology perspective and cognitive-behavioural theory of anxiety disorders; (2) etiological perspectives of anxiety disorders in youth; (3) research on youth’s emotional distress (i.e., associated cognitive, behavioural, and physiological symptoms), peer relationships, parents anxiety symptoms, and parenting behaviours. The goal of the proposed research is to move towards conceptualizing the development of anxiety symptoms through multiple variables, rather than isolated factors. This examination has the potential to enhance the scientific understanding of the development of sub-clinical anxiety symptoms in youth.
Specifics: Study Population: Female youth aged 11 to 18 and their parents. Individuals can choose to participate if they experience(d) current/past diagnoses or medical conditions, take prescribed medications, and live in any city or province within Canada.
Participant Obligation: Complete a series of questionnaires via Qualtrics.

Description: This two phase study examines the relationship between personality characteristics and life circumstances on coping responses to the 2019 Coronavirus (phase 1). Additionally, this study examines the impact of tailored expressive writing exercises on processing and coping with challenges posed by COVID-19 (phase 2). This study requires the complete of an online survey (phase 1), daily writing activities/reflections, and follow-up surveys (phase 2). Compensation is provided for phase 2, such that each writing activity completed corresponds to an additional chance to win one of four money prizes.
Specifics: Study Population: Seeking individuals who are 17 years or older who can read and write well in English.
Participant Obligation: Completing an online survey (phase 1, 30-40 minutes), daily writing activities for fourteen consecutive days (10-15 minutes each), and completion of follow-up surveys at 2 weeks, 1 month, and 3 months after the writing activities (phase 2).
Description: The purpose of this study is to examine how well 3 types of treatment for ADHD compare to one another: 1) group cognitive behavioural and skills training therapy (CBT+S); 2) supportive group therapy (SGT); and 3) treatment as usual in the community. Once eligible, participation will involve being randomly assigned to receive 12 weeks of intervention in one of the 3 aforementioned groups. Parents of adolescents assigned to the two types of group therapy will also participate in 6 weeks of parent group therapy. Participants, parents and teachers will be asked to complete interviews and questionnaires pertaining to ADHD symptoms and various areas of functioning at baseline after medication stabilization (medication optional), after 12 weeks of group therapy and 4 and 8 months later. A coach will call each participant to help implement CBT strategies in daily life. For participants assigned to SGT, calls from coaches will deal with participant-elicited issues.
Specifics: Study Population: Adolescents (aged 13-17) with ADHD from the Greater Montreal area will be entered into the study. The study is open to both medicated and un-medicated adolescents.
Participant Obligation:Patients participate in this study for approximately one year. Once eligible, participation includes optional medication titration, 12 weeks of therapy and 4 in-person assessments.

Description: Une étude récente, menée auprès de psychologues canadiens, a révélé que les indicateurs de suivi de progrès en thérapie sont encore peu connus et peu utilisés par les psychologues francophones (Ionita & Fitzpatrick, 2014). En effet, par comparaison aux anglophones, les cliniciens francophones sont moins conscients de l’existence de ces mesures et les utilisent significativement moins dans leur pratique. Une des raisons expliquant l’existence de cette différence est le fait que plusieurs de ces indicateurs de suivi de progrès ne sont pas disponibles en français. L’objectif général de ce programme de recherche est de combler ces lacunes en traduisant et en validant, en français, diverses mesures d’indicateurs de suivi de progrès en thérapie.
Study Population: Les critères d’inclusion des participants sont les suivants : être âgé de 18 ans et plus, être francophone et être en début de psychothérapie. Nous recrutons des participants qui proviennent du Nouveau-Brunswick et de l’extérieur de la province.
Participant Obligation: La tâche des participants est de remplir une série de questionnaires après leur 1ere séance, 4e séance et 8e séance de thérapie. La série de questionnaires prend environ une heure à compléter et peut être remplie au domicile du participant.
Les participants recevront une compensation monétaire de 20$ après chaque temps de mesure.
Les coûts de livraison des questionnaires sont assumés par les chercheurs.
