New Study on Extreme Sports Needs Participants


science_cartoonExtreme sports researchers Dr. Eric Brymer and Susan Houge Mackenzie (both recent guests on The Edge) are working on a new study.

They are looking for participants in a research study looking into psychological and emotional experiences and emotional skills used in extreme, adventure and traditional sports. Below is a letter explaining the study.

If you’re an athlete, please consider participating. I did. It only takes a few minutes.

Plus, you never know. Your results may help better understand how sports make us better people (although, in my case I’m probably not helping with that very much).

Dear athlete,
My name is Eric Brymer and I am part of a team conducting cross-cultural research on well-being, emotions, and emotional skills in extreme, adventure, and traditional sports.  If you’d like to help me in this study I’m looking for males and females over the age 18 to complete a 20 minute online questionnaire about your sporting experiences.
Further details on the study and how to participate can be found by clicking on the following link:
We are also interested in interviewing participants about their experiences if you would like to participate in an interview please either leave your contact details in the relevant section of the survey above or contact one of the researchers below.
Please note that this study has been approved by the Queensland University of Technology Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 1300000176
Many thanks for your consideration of this request.
