We hope that you will be willing to participate in survey research that will expand our knowledge of the relationships between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. The Albert Ellis Institute (AEI) collaborates with research from many universities in designing studies that advance our mission. Although you will receive no direct benefits from participating, these research studies will help the investigators understand human thinking, emotions, and behaviors, and may lead to more effective psychological interventions.
The professional staff of the Albert Ellis Institute and the Director of the AEI, Kristene A. Doyle, Ph.D., has approved each of these studies.
Each study has its own formal consent form and description of its purpose. For each study we have assured that all of your responses will be kept confidential and there will be no way to link your responses to any personal information about you.
Below are links to several studies. We appreciate your cooperation.
