Mindfulness Meditation And Women Graduate Students


Research Participants Needed

Are you a woman at least 18 years old, enrolled in a graduate psychology program and practice mindfulness meditation, you may be eligible to participate in this research study?

I invite you to participate in a research study. I am a doctoral learner at Capella University in the Harold Able School of Psychology.  I am conducting research to complete my degree. I will write a dissertation about the research findings.


The main purpose of the study is to learn about the experiences of women graduate psychology students at least 18 years old, who practice mindfulness meditation during graduate school.  I want to know how their experience impacts their ability to weather the challenges associated with the academic stress of achieving a graduate degree.


Participants will complete a 1.5-hour  semi-structured, open-ended interview and a 1 hour follow up interview via Adobe Connect.

Participants will receive an electronic Amazon visa gift card valued at $30.00 after completion of the study.
