Welcome to our research project.

Participant Information and Consent Form

We highly encourage you to use your laptop or computer in answering this online survey. We highly discourage use of a mobile phone to avoid distractions from the phone's notifications.

DESCRIPTION OF THE RESEARCH
You are invited to participate in a research study about your thoughts and feelings. This will include a questionnaire in which you will be asked to share your personal experience of a deeply unjust event that happened to you or a pattern of unjust events. You also will be asked about your driving behaviors. This is a basic-research (non-intervention) study to examine how different thoughts and emotions are related to one another. The study also will be establishing the need for appropriate psychological interventions for the injustices and well-being.

WHAT WILL MY PARTICIPATION INVOLVE?
Once you agree to participate, you will be asked to complete 16 brief questionnaires online. These questionnaires will help the researchers to explore the validity of some of the questionnaires, which are given for the first time in this study. The 16 brief online questionnaires will take about an hour to complete or perhaps longer for some people.
 
ARE THERE ANY RISKS TO ME?
Some participants may feel uncomfortable in completing surveys about their past hurtful experiences. You may withdraw at any time, and you may also skip questions you would prefer not to answer. Your answering all items would be very helpful to us. If you feel uncomfortable or have some negative emotional reactions, you can ask the researcher or those who are administering the questionnaires for help.

There is a risk of breach of confidentiality. See “How Will My Confidentiality Be Protected” to learn about how the researchers will protect confidentiality.

ARE THERE ANY BENEFITS TO ME?
No direct benefits are expected for you from participation in this study. One potential benefit as a result of completing the questionnaires is that the participants may think differently about themselves and may become more motivated to make changes in their life. Your answers may help others in the future as we are able to develop valid questionnaires for assessing psychological states in people.
 
WILL I BE COMPENSATED FOR MY PARTICIPATION?
For your participation, we will enter you into a raffle in which 20 people will win 500 (Philippine pesos) in cash. Your chance of winning the random draw is 7.4074%. Cash prize will be deposited into your bank account. We will request information only from those who win the raffle. The winners will be given the option of what kind information to give to us regarding the transfer of money (such as direct bank deposit, GCash, and so forth). 

Question Title

* To qualify for the prize, you must take the surveys seriously, complete, and submit the online survey. You only will be entered to the raffle entry if you take it seriously. Please note that you must be at least 21 years old to participate in the raffle. Participants may end participation at any time if they are feeling uncomfortable, however, you will not be entered to the raffle entry if you do not complete the questionnaires or if the submitted responses are deemed unusable.
HOW WILL MY CONFIDENTIALITY BE PROTECTED?

While there probably will be publications as a result of this study, your name will not be used. Only group characteristics will be published. Your name will not be collected at any time in the online survey unless you give us consent to contact you for further participation for future studies. Your name and email address will only be linked to your survey responses via a special code assigned by SurveyMonkey. We will minimize the risk of breach of confidentiality through the data by restricting data access to the research team and by storing data on a secure and encrypted server (i.e. Box). If you withdraw from the online survey, responses collected up to the point of withdrawal may be retained and used as a part of the research analysis.
All responses in the survey will be stored in a private, password-protected computer of the Principle Investigator, Jacqueline Song. Only the researchers in this study will conduct data analysis with the survey responses. After the analysis is complete, the data will be stored by the Principle Investigator, Jacqueline Song, in this same password-protected computer (only for the purpose of keeping a record of the research).
Finally, any personal contact information of participants, such as name, address, and contact information, will not be used in any publications as a result of this study. Any participant may withdraw participation whenever he or she chooses. This study will strictly follow the guidelines put forth by the National Ethics Committee in the Philippines.
WHOM SHOULD I CONTACT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS?
If you are not satisfied with the response of the research team, have more questions, or want to talk with someone about your rights as a research participant, you should contact the National Ethics Committee at (02) 8837-7537 .
Your participation is completely voluntary. If you begin participation and change your mind, you may end your participation at any time without penalty.
