Online Group Psychological Health Promotion Program for Women with Spinal Cord Injury

The Spinal Cord Injury and Disability Research Center (SCIDR) at TIRR Memorial Hermann is recruiting for a study to test a psychological health promotion program for women with spinal cord injury (SCI).

The 10-week group program, Zest: A Psychological Health Promotion Program for Women with SCI, or simply Zest, is delivered in the online virtual world of Second Life. Eligible participants will be randomized (like flipping a coin) to either the Zest program or a control group. All participants will complete online assessments at three time points. Participants will receive a small payment for their time.
