PROTOCOL: DISSERTATION

Seeking Dissertation Research Subjects

Gong Tones is seeking research subjects to participate in a dissertation study in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) from Sofia University in Palo Alto, California. Your participation consists of a visit to the researcher’s office in St. George, Utah at the start of the study which should last approximately one hour, and an additional visit in two weeks which will also last approximately one hour. During these sessions, the researcher will collect data measuring your level of anxiety using written surveys, an EEG headset designed to measure brainwave activity, and a finger sensor which will measure heart rate variability. In the two weeks in between, you will be instructed to either: (a) listen to an 11-minute recording each day in a place of your choosing using a link provided by the researcher or (b) go about your normal daily routine.

If you are interested in participating in this study and are able to come to our facility in St. George, Utah for an initial visit and a follow-up visit two weeks later, please click here.
