Welcome to the Secure Base Priming Study. The study examines the effects of repeated exposure to secure base words and guided imagery on mood, felt-security and attachment style.
Participants are required to:
1. Login on 10 different days in the manner required.
2. Complete the priming exercises every day for nine days.
3. Complete the exercises every day during the week (Monday-Friday) and AT LEAST one day over the weekend. After the ninth day of priming, the participant needs to stop for one week. The system will not allow you complete the final assessment until 7 days AFTER your nineth priing session.
4. Complete the final assessment on the last day of the study.
The entire study will take approximately three weeks using this schedule (including the one week break between session 9 and the final assessment).
If the participant chooses, they can prime for 9 days in row, but they still must stop for a week before completing the final assessment..
Each session lasts no longer than five minutes, so it requires very little time in your day. The final assessment day usually takes about 10-15 minutes at the most.
You may only participate in the study (and hence use this program) if you agree to faithfully complete the exercises in the manner required. If you stop participating for more than two days, your account may be deleted unless you contact the researcher to ask permission to continue. However, you may be refused continued access to the program if the time elapsed is too long.
