Research Participants Needed: Evidence-based workshops on self-control and relationship quality

Modified: August 17, 2015

Do you ever wonder how you can reach your fullest potential?

The Department of Psychology is offering a unique program this fall designed to examine the human capacity for personal development over a short period of time. A group of Northwestern undergraduates will join a 6-week evidence-based workshop on either Self-Control and Goal Pursuit or Effective Communication and Interpersonal Relationships from a highly qualified instructor.
The workshops teach the newest science on how to facilitate positive changes in many aspects of one’s life, including health, academic performance, relationships, and fulfillment.Participants will be paid $90 for completion of the six-week program (twice per week for 1.5 hours each session), along with 4 hours of research testing associated with the study.  The programs will be offered in the evenings during the fall quarter.  Research testing will be completed during the week prior and the week following the program, as well as an online survey three months later. The testing will entail cognitive tasks, surveys, puzzles, and writing assignments.
Each program is designed to present the best evidence-based strategies, spark meaningful conversations, and provide concrete steps to help you potentially achieve your goals. This study is being conducted by Dr. Daniel Molden and colleagues (STU201004).
