Opportunity to help other atheists
My name is Dominika. I am an atheist and a 5th year doctoral student pursuing a Psy.D in Clinical Psychology at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, PA. I am currently working on my dissertation entitled "Experiences of Coming out of the Atheist Closet."

What I hope to gain from this research is information and awareness that I can pass onto therapists, psychologists, counselors, etc. so that they may be sensitive to the issues and experiences that atheists go through. Hence, by participating in this study you will be helping other atheists get better mental health services should they ever need them!


Here is my research flyer. If anyone has any questions or interest in being a participant, feel free to contact me!

*NOTE: this research is directed at individuals residing within the US only, as that is where the research is being conducted. Thanks!

Welcome! I moved this to "Ask an atheist" since that is what you appear to be here for.

Interesting.

RE: Opportunity to help other atheists
Might I ask, why the focus on atheists who came out in the last 5 years?

Hi! The reason I chose a 5 year limit is simply due to the fact that memory recall is better with a shorten time span. A longer time span generally means less accurate memory, fuzzy details, etc.

RE: Opportunity to help other atheists
I'd participate but that was like over 40 years ago. It was uneventful.
