Jocelyn Lai and researchers from the Department of Psychological Science at the University of California, Irvine are recruiting participants for a research study about their emotions and coping during COVID-19 shelter-in-place. This study may help us to better understand how individuals are feeling in response to this global pandemic.
You are eligible to participate in this study if you are at least 18 years of age or older, are currently sheltering-in-place, and have access to a smart phone with internet access. The study will take place remotely, meaning you may complete all study components in a safe, quiet, and convenient place (i.e., within the home). Participation will last up to 10-15 minutes each day for a total of 10 days.
As part of participating, you will be asked to first complete an online survey about emotions, relationships, and well-being, which takes no more than 30-minutes. You will then complete daily diary surveys for 10-days on your phone every evening, each taking about 10-15 minutes.
Upon completion of the study, you will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win one of five $50 Amazon gift cards. Upon completion of each diary survey per day, you will have another entry submitted into the raffle drawing (i.e., 10-days = 10 additional entries).
If you participate, there is no anticipated direct benefit. If you are interested in participating in this study, you may start the online survey (https://uci.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4SMVDkqMOXdLH7f), or please contact Jocelyn Lai at for more information.
