New MD Study Seeks Participants (With and Without MD)

Normally, I don't like people posting the same thing in a blog and a discussion, but I really want to get the word out about this:


Researchers from Fordham University (Jayne Bigelsen, Jonathan
Lehrfeld) and the University of Haifa (Eli Somer, who coined the term
Maladaptive Daydreaming (MD)) have joined forces to launch a new study on MD.   We are now ready to begin data collection!

This will be the largest study on MD to date. Our goals include
creating a screening tool to identify MD and more fully understanding
how it differs from more typical daydreaming.  We will also be
comparing and contrasting it to other mental health issues. The ultimate goals are to raise awareness by mental health providers of MD and generate future study, which can hopefully lead to eventual treatment.

 But we need your help!!!  First and foremost, please complete the
following survey (link below).  We expect that it will take between 30
and 60 minutes.


But as importantly, we need your help in recruiting control
participants WHO DO NOT HAVE MD.  (This is going to be difficult to do
as people without MD will be less motivated to fill out a lengthy
survey on a topic not relevant to them, and at the moment we do not
yet have any funding to pay them to fill it out)...So for those of you
who have told friends and family about MD (and I know many people
have not), please ask as many of them as possible to fill it out.

Thank you!

Jayne Bigelsen
