Social Anxiety Project:
The Anxiety Disorders Laboratory at American University is conducting a study examining the drinking motives of individuals with high and low levels of social anxiety. Participants will complete a 10/15 minute online questionnaire. Some subjects will then be asked to come into the lab for a follow-up visit that will take approximately 30 minutes. Students enrolled in eligible courses may receive extra credit or $5 for complete participation. All others will receive $5 for their participation in the follow-up visit. If you have any questions, please contact Frances Mitchell at email@example.com
This study examines implicit cognitions in blood-injection-injury (BII)
phobia. Specificially, the study examines changes that occur in implicit cognitions after exposure to a disgust-eliciting stimulus, since previous research indicates that disgust plays a large role in the phobia. Our goal is to increase an understanding of the changes that can occur in cognitions after undergoing a behavioral task and to compare the differences between BII phobics and non-phobics. Participation in the in-person study will take approximately one hour to complete. For more information contact Natalie Rusch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In a follow-up study, we are looking at implicit associations of disgust in Blood-Injection-Injury (BII) Phobia one week after exposure to a disgust stimulus. Research has demonstrated that some individuals experience a return of symptoms following a fear exposure session. This study intends to assess the efficacy of disgust exposure by examining whether improvements in phobic responding are maintained at follow-up.
