Dear potential participant,
my name is Janka Vindisova and I am a PhD student in the Department of Psychology at Trnava University in Slovakia. Thank you for considering taking part in my research by which you can contribute to understanding of human experience across different cultures.
The aim of this study is to explore various aspects of distress and well – being and to compare the experience of people from different cultural background. While a lot of existing cross – cultural studies deal with comparison of prototypic collectivist countries of Eastern Asia and USA, the area of Central and Eastern Europe has not obtained much research attention. That is why we would like to study experience of Slovaks, Czechs and Romanians and to compare them with participants from USA and United Kingdom. If you are from the countries mentioned above, you are welcome to participate in the research.
Participation in the study is voluntary and strictly anonymous. It involves no more than minimal risk (the level of risk encountered in daily life) and contains no deception. You will be asked to complete online questionnaire, which typically takes about 20 minutes. You may withdraw from the study at any time by closing your web browser.
The project has been reviewed and approved by the Psychology Department Ethical Committee at Trnavian University in Trnava. If you have any questions or concerns about this research, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
