Thanks for your interest George! I can't provide pictures because there's nothing to provide pictures of! This research employs the use of self-report measures; data collection is achieved through participants answering questionnaires.

Good questions Oscar. As per ethical standards, our participant's information will be shared with no other than the researchers (which in this case is myself, my advising professor and perhaps an assistant to be determined later on). We're going to use the CESD-R (center for epidemiologic studies depression scale revised) which is a reliable and valid questionnaire in addition to a myriad of other measures that will help us look for moderating and mediating variables in the depression contagion effect/process. As far as letting them know if they have depression or not: That is something I will need to discuss with my adviser as the study progresses.
