I am currently a graduate student at California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University in San Diego, CA working on my PhD in clinical psychology. My passion is to work with women who are breast cancer patients and survivors to improve quality of life during/after treatment.
I am conducting my dissertation research study in the area of breast cancer survivors and predictors of depression. I am seeking women breast cancer survivors between the ages of 18 and 80 to participate in my study. Eligibility includes completion of initial breast cancer treatment (chemotherapy, radiation, surgery) within the last 4 years (being on hormone therapy is ok). This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of Alliant International University.
As a participant, you will be asked to complete a one-time series of questionnaires. The study may take between 60-90 minutes depending on how fast/slow you work. I do ask that the questionnaires be completed in one sitting, but you may take as many breaks as needed.
Although I live in San Diego, CA, you may participate outside of San Diego. I will mail you the packet of questionnaires along with a self-addressed stamped envelope to return the packet to me.
I am in need of 130-140 breast cancer survivors. Currently 119 amazing women have been generous with their time and have contributed enormously to this research study. I would greatly appreciate any help you may be able to provide whether it be participating or sharing my contact information with someone who is eligible to participate.
Although there is no direct benefit to you in participating in this study, it will provide more information regarding depression in breast cancer survivors and improve the literature which is lacking in this area. The ultimate goal of this research is to help improve quality of care for breast cancer patients and survivors by not only addressing physical issues, but emotional issues as well.

study, please contact:
