As with any research project, there are both risks and benefits to your participation. The topics of coping and stress can be difficult to talk about; if, at any point, you decide you would like to stop participating, you are able to do so without penalty. However, you may benefit from participating in the study by gaining increased insight into your emotions and coping style. In addition, upon completion of the study, you could be entered into a raffle to win a $10 Amazon gift card.
