Research Participation Request: Attitudes towards Asexuality: Developing a Psychometric Scale

Recommended Posts

Quote

My name is Sinead Kelleher and I am a final year student of BA(Hons)Applied Psychology in University College Cork, Ireland.

I am currently completing my final year thesis and wish to develop a psychometric scale to assess attitudes towards asexuality. For the initial stage of data collection I am required to gather information regarding attitudes towards asexuality.

I am writing to request the participation of an asexual individual from your community. Is it possible to obtain a written document regarding the experience of asexuality and response from others through the perspective of an asexual individual?

 

If you wish to participate, the dropbox link to share to, and the attached message are below.

Hi everyone!

 

My name is Sinead Kelleher and I am currently undertaking final year studies in University College Cork, School of Applied Psychology. For my thesis I am attempting to develop a psychometric scale to assess attitudes towards asexuality. I am completing this thesis in the hope of furthering scientific literature in the area of asexuality and raising awareness. As already posted on this website, I am asking people to take part in this thesis by providing a written account of their experiences of identifying as asexual.

If you are interested in taking part in my study my email address is 115495478@umail.ucc.ie

I can assure you of all ethical considerations which have been approved by AVEN's ethics committee and UCC's ethics committee.

 

Best wishes,

 

Sinead

I'm currently in the "closet." Does this mean my testimony won't aid you in your project?
