The benefits of participation include being able to participate in psychological research where your self-identified gender is recognized, respected, and acknowledged and contributing to knowledge about the emotion regulation preferences of people who identify as gender minorities.
To help us gain further insights into this area we will ask you to complete an online survey that takes approximately 10-15 minutes, where you will be asked about how you respond to your emotional experiences. There is a potential for minimal emotional discomfort due to reflection on the ways you respond to emotional experiences, such as distressing emotional experiences. Resources will be provided to help cope with the potential risk of emotional discomfort, if needed.
The data you will provide will be recorded anonymously, and your participation and anything you endorse will be held in the strictest confidence.
We welcome questions about the study at any time. Your participation in this study is on voluntary basis, and you may refuse to participate at any time without consequence or prejudice.
