The Relationship and Wellbeing Study

We are currently recruiting 150 people high in worry and their romantic partners (300 people total) for an online study investigating the relationship between anxiety and relationship functioning. 

  • Do you have a longtime habit of worrying about many different things?
  • Do you find it difficult to control your worrying?
  • Have you been in a committed romantic relationship for the past 6 months or longer?
  • Would your romantic partner also be interested in participating? 
  • Are you and your partner at least 18 years of age, and do you both reside in Canada and have access to a device with internet?

If so, you and your partner may be eligible to participate!

Participation in the “Relationship and Wellbeing Study” involves BOTH you and your partner complete:

1) a brief online screen questionnaire to assess your eligibility (which participants will not receive an incentive for)
2) a 2-minute phone call to review the study consent form
3) a 30-minute online survey about anxiety and relationship functioning.
