History, Purpose and Informed Consent:
Self-care in mental health practitioners is a crucially important, yet understudied, phenomenon. APA’s Advisory Committee on Colleague Assistance (ACCA) is conducting a research project to better understand the practice of self-care in psychologists. Information gathered in this study will be used to develop an ACCA “toolkit” for psychologists, a web-based resource center aimed at assisting us with taking good care of ourselves and our colleagues. Launch of the ACCA web-based resource center is planned for 2019.
Participation in the project is voluntary. If you agree to participate, please know that you may choose to discontinue your participation at any time without consequences. All responses collected in this project are anonymous, and your name will not be linked with your data.
This research study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at the University of Maine. If you have any questions about this study, please contact Dr. Rebecca Schwartz-Mette at any time (email@example.com; 207-581-2048). If you have any questions about your rights as a research participant, contact Gayle Jones, Assistant to the University of Maine’s Institutional Review Board, 581-1498, firstname.lastname@example.org.
