Recruiting international students for brief online survey and workshop

Yiying Xiong and Lieny Jeon, faculty members at Johns Hopkins University School of Education, are recruiting international students for a short survey to learn more about the international students' experiences and mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic and needs for resources (HIRB00011537, 9/25/2020).

If you are older than 18, hold a valid temporary visa in the United States (F-1 or J-1), and are currently enrolled as a student at Johns Hopkins University, you are qualified and welcome to participate in the survey. The survey will take about 20-25 minutes. Your response will help researchers further understand the psychological experiences of international students during the COVID-19 pandemic and explore the possible directions for a workshop supporting international students.

You will also be asked if you are interested in participating in a mindfulness-based group workshop with the researchers that aims to help international students learn self-care strategies and stress reduction. The workshop will be held in spring 2021 and consist of nine weekly virtual sessions. To learn more about the study, please contact the principal investigator, Yiying Xiong, assistant professor, Johns Hopkins University School of Education, at or 318-497-5023.
