Participants needed for two student research projects in psychology

Two fourth year Psychology students are seeking participants for their honours research projects. Both projects have been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee and offer small rewards for participation.

These studies take place at the Bundoora Campus.

This study aims to investigate the link between mindfulness, emotional flexibility, and the adjustments of international students. Participants will be asked to complete an anonymous survey and watch a video clip. The study will take approximately 20 minutes.

It is open to international students, preferably from the Asia-Pacific region. Participants will receive a $5 Coles Myer voucher on completion of the study.

If you are interested in participating, you can schedule a time online. Alternatively, you may email the researcher.
