Online Study for Caregivers

Are you an unpaid caregiver for a loved one? Do you provide care on a daily basis for at least 3 hours per day? Are you at least 18 years of age? If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, you may be eligible to participate in a study conducted by researchers at the University of Maryland.

The study explores participants’ caregiving experiences through 2 
surveys and 3 writing exercises. Some people find writing as a way to record what happens to them or as a way to talk about difficult experiences. There has been great interest in recent years with writing to understand important experiences in your life.

Often times care for a patient takes precedence, and the wellbeing of the caregiver is largely ignored. This is your chance to help other 
caregivers and help researchers to develop ways to improve the lives of caregivers.

The 2 surveys and 3 writing exercises will be spaced out so that you complete one per week for five weeks. It will take approximately 15-25 minutes of your time each week. You can complete the entire 
study online. This research is being conducted by Amy Fuhrmann, M.S. and Mary Ann Hoffman, Ph.D., professor and co-director of the counseling psychology program at the University of Maryland, College Park. If you would like to participate in this research, please contact Amy Fuhrmann at fuhrmann@umd.edu or follow the link below. To participate, you must meet the eligibility requirements of the screening questionnaire.
