Research Participation Opportunities
Share |


Below are opportunities to participate in research.  TPA is not endorsing these research projects, but has agreed to post information to our website when contacted with a request. 


Dear Tennessee Psychological Association,


Your members are invited to participate in research on Collaboration Factors Between Psychologists and Primary Care Physicians (PCPs).  Psychologist perspectives on collaboration with PCPs have received little research attention, yet collaboration between psychological and medical professionals is increasingly emphasized.  Participation may help inform collaboration training and practice for both disciplines. 


This research is being conducted by Jessica Aaron, a doctoral student at Fielding Graduate University.  This study is approved by the IRB at that institution.  Participation will require approximately 15 minutes, and consists of taking two online surveys.  Participants in this study must be licensed psychologists in either Canada or the U.S., and must work with individual clients in some capacity.  Psychologists whose professional activities do not include interactions with individual clients (such as those who solely work as professors, administrators, or researchers) are ineligible.  Participation in health-specific areas of psychology is not required. 


Please consider sending this invitation to your members if any might meet the participation criteria and be willing to participate in this research.  They can access the informed consent information and study items by clicking the link below.


Thank you for your time and consideration.  I understand that you likely receive many requests for psychologist research participation, so please let me know if there is a more formal submission process, or if more information is needed.

Dear Provider,


I am a graduate student in the Department of Clinical Psychology at Southern Illinois University Carbondale conducting a study on factors related to treatment choices among child mental health professionals who practice in rural communities. 


The purpose of the enclosed survey is to explore the clinician and agency/practice factors that influence treatment decisions and the implementation of new therapy approaches. You were selected to participate in this study because of your affiliation with the Tennessee Psychological Association. This study is open for clinicians who have provided therapy services to at least one child in the past six months and who currently practice in a rural area. The survey is completely anonymous and will take around 25-30 minutes to complete. Only the people directly involved with this project will have access to the surveys. Completion and return of this survey indicate voluntary consent to participate in this study.

If you know of other service providers in your area or have colleagues who may be interested in participating, please feel free to forward the survey link to them. The more people who complete this study, the more information we will know about this important issue!


Questions about this study can be directed to me ( or to my supervising professor, Dr. Karla Fehr, Department of Psychology, SIUC, Carbondale, IL 62901-6502. Phone (618) 453-3554. Email


Thank you for taking the time to assist me in this research.
