My Thesis
My Name is Mary Keena, I am a final year Psychology Student at Dublin Business School. As part of my degree I have to carry out a research project which looks at the differences in coping strategies, social anxiety and self esteem, between people with and without Albinism. This project is being carried out under the direction of Dr. Barbara Caska. I greatly appreciate your assistance with this by completing the following questionnaire, please say what you really think and try to be as honest and accurate as possible. There are no “right” or “wrong” answers to these questions. Do not pause for too long over any one question. Your answers are completely private and you do not have to write your name anywhere. I hope you will find the questionnaire interesting and enjoyable to do.
