Study on Emotion Regulation and Social Support

We are interested in how close friends and family may help individuals cope with their grief after the death of a loved one. 

We are recruiting adults aged 18 years or older, who have experienced the death of a loved one. In this study, you would participate in an online survey. The anonymous survey includes questions about your close friends and family, as well as your thinking, feelings, health, and behaviors. The survey is entirely online, so no campus visits are necessary and you can participate from anywhere in the country. If you would like to participate, you can directly access the survey by clicking HERE.

As part of the study, you will also have the chance to win one of five Kindle Fires.

An Institutional Review Board responsible for human subjects research at The University of Arizona reviewed this research project and found it to be acceptable.

We thank you for your willingness to help us understand the experience of grief and to advance science!
