A new call for participation went out this month. Graduate student Ori Median, of Ben Gurion University, is calling on the MD community to take part in a study on “the dynamics and reciprocal relations between self-concept, memories, and daydreaming.”

English Language
MDers only

My name is Ori and I’m a graduate student of Dr. Nirit Soffer-Dudek from Ben Gurion University, Israel. As some of you may know, one of the main focuses of research in the lab is Maladaptive Daydreaming. Much of the progress in Maladaptive Daydreaming research is due to the willingness of the MDer community to participate in our studies. We wish for MD to get recognized officially by the scientific and medical community, a recognition well deserved and such that we hope will help people with MD to get more help and more recognition. We invite you to participate in a new study that we are conducting right now.

The current study, conducted by graduate student Mr Ori Meidan, under the supervision of Dr. Nirit Soffer-Dudek, from Ben-Gurion University, explores the dynamics and reciprocal relations between self-concept, memories, and daydreaming. We are looking for English-speaking adults who consider themselves as having maladaptive daydreaming. If you consider yourself a maladaptive daydreamer, we are seeking your consent to include you as a participant in our study, provided that you are legally an adult (at least 18 years old) and proficient in the English language. Any identifying information collected will remain strictly confidential and revealed only within the research team in Dr. Soffer-Dudek’s lab. It takes around 25 minutes to complete the study

In the link provided below, you will find a full description of the study, as well as informed consent and contact information in case you want to ask any questions regarding the study. The research has the approval of the Ben Gurion University ethics committee.
