Participate in online surveys for research on OCD and family relationships via Case Western Reserve University

Amy Przeworski contacted me about posting a link to her online studies. Researchers at Case Western Reserve University are conducting two online studies about the relationships of individuals with OCD or hoarding. Each study involves completing questionnaires online about relationships, emotions and OCD. You must be at least 18 to participate. Those who participate may enter into a raffle for a Target gift card. The information gathered from this study may help to improve therapies for OCD.

For more information:

Individuals with OCD and/or hoarding:

Relatives and significant others of those with OCD and/or hoarding:

This study is being conducted by Amy Przeworski, a researcher in the psychology department at Case Western Reserve University.

  2. Looks like the link is working now. Thanks for sharing this! I've been living with OCD for the last 10 years, and find like blogs like yours are so helpful. I wonder if you've also seen http://onlineceucredit.com/edu/social-work-ceus-ocd. There's some great information there. Thanks so much for sharing your story, as well.

  4. I too am unable to connect with the questionaire. I have tried from several different sites. I always get a message saying"Internet Explorer cannot connect with this........." I am a hoarder, another form of OCD. I would never be on one of those awful television shows--those people are just filthy trash collectors. I have piles and paths, but I have enough sense to throw out the trash and garbage. But I would dearly like to have knowledgeable help with my problem. HELP !!! VJL
