Hello, my name is Calli Johnson. I am a graduate student at San Francisco State University in the Sexuality Studies department. I am conducting research on the experience Queer/LGBTQIAP+ individuals have with self harm, specifically cutting. I am inviting you to participate because you are online looking at the the topic of self harm. My inclusion criteria for this study is that participants have a history of self-harm and identify as LGBTQIAP+ or under the umbrella of queer. People that identify as both heterosexual and cis-gendered are excluded from the study.
Participation in this research includes taking a screener survey ( https://sfsu.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2uDwNcHfqXtJOeN ) to determine if you are eligible based on the subject criteria which may take up to ten minutes. If you are eligible, you will be contacted to conduct a very thorough interview through email which will occur over a two- to three-week period and may take between 5 to 10 hours. The interview will ask sensitive questions specific to your gender identity, sexual orientation and experience with self-harm.
If you have any questions or would like to participate in the research, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can take the screener here: https://sfsu.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2uDwNcHfqXtJOeN
This study has been approved by the San Francisco State University Institutional Review Board Chair. Protocol Number: X16-25.
