Seeking Participants For Doctoral Research

Hello, I am doing doctoral research on how listening daily to worship songs influences the emotional well-being of women veterans.  I am seeking 4 – 6 women veteran participants for this study. Preferably from the Sacramento Valley and Sierra Nevada foothill regions. Participants will complete a brief survey and commit to listening to a specific list of Christian worship songs for a block of 20 minutes per day for 28 consecutive days. You can do this listening from anywhere! So long as you listen for 20 minutes straight daily to the prescribed playlist.

I’m looking forward to sitting down together with each of you for an estimated one-hour recorded chat both before and after the 28-day listening period, so I can learn more about you and what you experienced during the study. (Note: if you choose to participate, all personal information will be kept confidential, including changing your name as it appears in the study.)

The interviews and listening period are tentatively scheduled for some time during May and the end of July 2022. By the way, if you don’t know me yet, I’ve been providing spiritual support to military, military families and veterans (including members of Women Veterans Alliance) for over 15 years, and am a lifelong Northern California resident. Interested? Questions? Email me before April 20, 2022: elizabeth.fulgaro@student.tku.edu 

Looking forward to connecting.
