Thank you for your interest in participating in this research study.   The purpose of this research study is to validate the Sexological Worldview Development Inventory (SWDI), an instrument for determining one’s sexological worldview. By standardizing the SWDI as a result of this study, we hope to be able to better measure the effectiveness of trainings that are designed to develop more sensitivity in human service professionals around sex and sexuality. 


By clicking on the "Start Survey" button at the bottom of this page, you will be directed to an online survey on Survey Monkey either by email or a recruitment flyer.  The survey will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete.  Topics are related to your views regarding sex and sexuality.  Answers will be recorded via Survey Monkey, and participation is completely confidential and anonymous.  There are no costs to participating in the study.  No identifying information will be collected from you in this survey; it is entirely anonymous and the researcher will have no way to connect your responses to you personally.

I have any questions about this study, I may contact Justin Sitron, Ph.D., at  610-499-4296 or If I have any questions about the rights of research participants, I may call the Chairperson of the Widener University’s Institutional Review Board at 610-499-4110.
