Doctoral Dissertation Help – Final Round

If you recall some time ago, I posted a request for help from someone doing their thesis on weight loss and partners.   Amanda Harp is in her final round of recruitment and is looking for 35 more surveys.  If you meet the criteria, why not fill it in and help a woman get her PhD.

*Are you at least 18 years of age?

*Have you been participating in a weight loss program for the past consecutive 5 weeks?

*Have you been in a committed, cohabitating relationship for the past 2 years?

*Do you ever feel like your partner/spouse gets in the way of your weight loss?

 

The rest is from her.


I have a nice update:  I only need 35 more participants for this final round of recruitment!  The last round was very successful for the exploratory factor analysis; now I’m completing data collection for the confirmatory factor analysis. 

Today I’m asking for your help in coming closer to becoming the first person in my family to earn a doctorate.  Please take a moment to think of a few people with whom you could share this request.  I hope you will choose to pass this message on to your social network through the best means (a personal email, Facebook post, blog entry, Tweet, etc.)  I could really use your help to finish my dissertation and bring research on this little-studied topic to light. 

Amanda Harp is a graduate student at Clark University. She only needs 35 more people to complete this survey for those with partners who (at least sometimes) sabotage weight loss programs.  This is the last piece of data collection she needs to complete toward her doctoral dissertation.

If you can answer yes to the next 4 questions, please help her out (she is donating $1 to charity for every completed survey, you can also enter a drawing for 1 of 10 gift cards – one $100 and nine $25)!

 

*Are you at least 18 years of age?

*Have you been participating in a weight loss program for the past consecutive 5 weeks?

*Have you been in a committed, cohabitating relationship for the past 2 years?

*Do you ever feel like your partner/spouse gets in the way of your weight loss?
