I am doing my master's thesis on the Effect of systematic desensitization and shaping on anxious behavior of college students. Each participant will give a short speech after a 20minute practice (reviewing the speech, reading it to other participants). I will then chose 3 participants with the highest fear responses (measured through observable behaviors and a wrist-worn heart rate monitor). These participants will speak in front of 1 person, 3 people, 5, 10, then finally the whole group. Each time they successfully speak in front of more people, they will receive a reward. Most participants will end up being audience members.
All participants will receive $10/hour (suspected $20 total) for participation at the end of the study!!!!
This will be video recorded for the purpose of inter observer agreement (no one else besides the person who scored the videos for integrity will see the video). This is completely voluntary and risk-free. It is designed to help treat fear of public speaking, which could be helpful in subsequent classes, job interviews, or any other presentations as well as a big confidence booster!
Exclusion criteria=anyone with heart conditions or on medication that effects heart rate.
This will be held in psychology room 1 on Thursday March 3rd from 6-8pm.
Please contact me if you are interested in participating in this study. I need a few more participants (1st come, 1st serve!)
Thanks in advance,
