Consent And Debriefing Forms


It is imperative for psychology students to learn how to create informed consent and debriefing forms that adequately state the purpose of studies to the participants in an ethical manner. In your capstone class, it is an expectation that you have a created a consent and debriefing form for your research proposal. It will be beneficial if you create this assignment around the topic you would like to research. Create an informed consent form and a debriefing form that explains the nature and true purpose of the study  See the attached document for a debriefing example. Be sure to cite your sources at the conclusion of the document.  two to four scholarly articles to support your content

PSY-452 Debriefing Statement

A debriefing statement is given to participants after the study is over. It briefly explains the hypothesis and describes what results the experimenters are looking for. If there was any deception in the study, this is where the researcher “comes clean,” and explains how the participants were deceived. Also, the decision to give an apology should be considered since there was a breach of trust between the experimenter and the subjects. Subjects should also be given the principal investigator’s phone number and/ or e-mail address, so that they can obtain a copy of the results of the study when available.


            Thank you for participating in our study. We examined the role of gender differences in humor. You were presented with 10 jokes, 5 in which the “victim” in the punchline was male, and 5 in which the victim was female. Our hypothesis was that men would prefer jokes where the victim was female, and that women would prefer the opposite. If you would like a copy of the results, send a request to Some Professor at The results should be tabulated in about three weeks. Once again, thank you for your time.
