    I am an African American graduate student studying psychology, and for my Master's thesis, I am conducting a survey on close relationships among African Americans. Up until now, most research on close relationships has focused on whites, and I think a lot could be learned from studying the ways that African American family members interact with each other.

    I'd appreciate if you'd participate in my study. In exchange for completing the survey, you will receive a $5 Amazon gift card and be entered into a raffle for the chance to win a $100 in April.

    Once I get 10 posts in response to this thread, I'll be able to post the link to the survey where you can access the survey and find out more information about the study.

    I'd appreciate any help that I could get with this project!

    :hello: Kel ... :welcome1: :welcome: :welcome1:

    Thanks for joining us and sharing!

    Unfortunately, we discourage these type of invitations. We've had many over the years, and are flattered ... but folk joining only to use us in a survey just doesn't seem right.

    I do wish you the very best in your studies, and congratulate you on pursuing your academic goals.

    Are you working toward a PhD?

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Yes, I am pursuing my PhD. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to recruit African American participants in my area :(

    That's great at the PhD! Keep up the good work! We need more of you! :toast:

    What area are you in, if you don't mind sharing?

    Are the African Americans present and not willing to participate, or are there so few?

    Bless your heart ... i know you're not gonna let this little hurdle keep you from your goal ... :)

    You've gone too far to stop now! I'm sure some site somewhere will allow this, just not us.

    Gosh ... you got me feeling bad ... :bye:

    I would like to know how you make it all work, after the fact, if you'll be so kind ... :)

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Ohhhh Kel ... you might wanna post to Craigslist if you haven't already. I remember seeing like posts there, perhaps put "African American" in the title somewhere ... drawing their attention to it.
