Development and Evaluation of an Educational Resource for Adults with High Needle Fear - Phase 2

Description: Did you know that about 1 in 10 adults will delay or refuse vaccination due to needle fear? Researchers from the University of Guelph and University of Toronto have developed an evidence-based electronic educational resource for needle fear to provide adults with the tools to self-manage their fear (sponsored by the Public Health Agency of Canada Immunization Partnership Fund). Currently, there are no existing widely accessible, evidence-based detailed resources for adults to self-manage their needle fear. We hope that this research can help create a freely available resource. There are two phases to this research: 1) to develop and modify the e-resource based on stakeholder feedback; and 2) an evaluation of the e-resource. We are currently recruiting participants for Phase 2 to evaluate the electronic resource. Specifically, we are looking to recruit adults with a moderate to high level of needle fear to review the e-resource and practice the skills that are described in the e-resource. Participants are invited to complete a questionnaire before and after they have reviewed and interacted with the e-resource. Participants may also be invited for a virtual interview to provide feedback. All participants will receive honoraria for participating. Link to participate: https://uoguelph.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2tLgkieKDPy8XkO

Specifics: Study Population:
Canadian adults (18 years +) with a moderate to high level of needle fear. Must have a Canadian phone number to participate.

Participant Obligation:
Complete: 1) a screening questionnaire; 2) baseline questionnaire; 3) brief phone screening; 4) review and use the e-resource; 5) second brief phone screening; 5) post-interaction questionnaire. Some will participate in a virtual interview.

Accessing and Utilizing Services for Intimate Partner Violence: Centering the Voices of Survivors and Service Providers who Serve Them

Description: Despite the growing body of research literature pertaining to the understanding of survivors' help-seeking behaviours, limitations remain with respect to adequately understanding and conceptualizing the service utilization of survivors using intersectionality theory. More research is needed to bridge the gap between the intersectionality theoretical framework and the development of service programs and policies that reach to the diverse groups of survivors. In order to promote equitable, accessible, and inclusive services for all survivors, it is imperative to learn how various groups of survivors experience services and how these services attend to their intersecting identities and unique social locations. It is also essential to explore how providers who serve them understand survivors' experiences. Therefore, the aim of this research is to explore from multiple perspectives, how survivors of IPV and service providers who serve them understand survivors' experiences of accessing and utilizing mental health and social support services. I hope that this study can make a contribution to the field of domestic violence, ultimately improving services for all survivors. If you are in Canada and interested in participating, please do not hesitate to contact me via email address at asra.milani@mail.mcgill.ca

Specifics: Study Population:
Participants are adult survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV), have left abusive relationship and are safe. Participants also are licensed mental health practitioners who worked with survivors of IPV and have five years of experience.

Attitudes Toward Different Groups

Description: In this study, we are examining attitudes toward two groups: 1) individuals who are sexually attracted to minors (i.e. under the age of 18) and 2) individuals who drink large amounts of alcohol almost daily. All participants will complete a demographics questionnaire, a questionnaire about attitudes toward individuals who are attracted to minors but have never committed a sexual offence, and a questionnaire about attitudes toward individuals with alcohol use problems. Mental healthcare providers will complete a questionnaire about their clinical experiences, a questionnaire about willingness to treat individuals who are attracted to minors and have never offended and a questionnaire about willingness to receive training to provide treatment to these individuals. Furthermore, open response questions will be asked to inquire about the reasons for mental healthcare providers’ motivation, or lack thereof, to work with individuals who are attracted to minors.

Specifics: Study Population:
Participants will include 225 registered mental healthcare providers or students on track to become registered mental healthcare providers and 75 members of the general public from Canada or the United States, N = 300.

SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY AND COVID-19 IN CANADA: TURNING CRISIS INTO OPPORTUNITIES

Description: The Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) has caused a significant crisis for the educational system and its students throughout the world. Canada remained closed for a total of 51 weeks, causing significant changes in the practice of professionals working in education. School psychologists were among the many professionals who adapted their work to meet the school and students' needs during the pandemic. An examination of school psychologists' practices during Covid-19 is necessary to gain a better insight into their role in the crisis and to learn lessons that can improve the field of school psychology in the future. This study aims to understand school psychologists' experiences regarding the changes and adaptations in their practices during Covid-19. It will also evaluate school psychologists' perceptions of the challenges and benefits associated with providing services during school closures and reopenings. One final objective is to investigate what they think should be preserved, modified, or improved in the field. This study will use a qualitative approach to understand the phenomenon, generate data, and provide additional insight into the topic. Participants will include 10 to 12 school psychologists working in Canadian schools. A modified version of the semi-instructed interview developed by Reupert et al. (2022) will be conducted online via Zoom. Interviews

Specifics: Study Population
Registered or provisional psychologists with, at minimum, one Canadian provincial or territorial regulatory body, working full-time or part-time in schools in Canada, who experienced some sort of COVID-19-related restriction, and English speakers.

Participant Obligation
Complete a short online questionnaire (3-5 minutes) and take part in a one-on-one interview (40-60 minutes).

Gay-Straight Alliances On University Campuses: Impact and Implications for the LGBTQ+ Community

Description: The current study looks to investigate the presence of Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) on Canadian University campuses to compare how awareness of GSAs impact mental health in LGBTQ+ university students. The impact of GSAs in similar literature has contributed to higher rates of academic achievement, better mental health, increased support from peers and teachers, reduced LGBTQ+ discrimination, and reduced suicidality in LGBTQ+ youth (Russell et al., 2011; Davis et al., 2016; Baams & Russell, 2020; Fetner & Elafros, 2015; Saewyc et al., 2014; Poteat et al., 2013). However, literature that examines the impact of GSAs in universities is sparse, and even more limited in regard to their effect in Canadian universities. Understanding how GSAs contribute to the psychological profiles of LGBTQ+ university students will provide universities with a better understanding of how to assist these individuals. The purpose of this study is to investigate and expand the current body of literature regarding the positive influence of GSAs on the LGBTQ+ community, and to determine if their influence is pervasive in LGBTQ+ university students. Further, the study also seeks to examine anti-bullying and discrimination policies implemented by universities and at the participant’s previous high schools to better understand their impact.

Specifics: Study Population
Must be 19+, enrolled in a Canadian university, identify as LGBTQ+, and live in Canada.

Participant Obligation
Participation in this research entails electronically completing several questionnaires through the platform "SurveyMonkey", which will take approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete.
