Informed Consent Form
This informed consent form is for individuals who have experienced alien abduction and who wish to participate in completing a questionnaire designed to identify commonalities among the UFO abduction experiencers.
Abduction researchers, Kathleen Marden and Denise Stoner, are inviting you to participate in these fact finding questionnaires. We have been providing support and insight into the alien abduction phenomenon for a combined total of more than 40 years. Our goal on the first form is to provide experiencers and the UFO community information about the unique constellation of demographic, social, emotional and medical commonalities that experiencers share. The second form identifies alien technology that experiencers have observed on the craft.
These questionnaires can benefit abductees by demonstrating that they are not alone. Those who have already completed the form have stated that they viewed it as a positive experience. However, we wish to caution you to be sensitive to your own emotions. If recalling your abduction memories is distressing, we advise you not to participate in these questionnaires. Participation is purely voluntary. We are asking you to help us learn more about commonalities in alien abduction experiences.
We will not ask you to share personal beliefs, practices or stories and you do not have to share any knowledge that you are not comfortable sharing.
You do not have to decide today whether or not you wish to participate in filling out these questionnaires. You may wish to return to them at any time. Completing each questionnaire will take approximately 30 minutes of your time. You can send them via email of via US mail. Specific instructions are listed on the top of each questionnaire. You may contact Kathleen Marden at Kmarden@aol.com or Denise Stoner at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and we will do our best to answer them to your satisfaction.
No one will be identified by name. Any personal information that you volunteer on the form is confidential and no one except Denise Stoner and Kathleen Marden will have access to your personal information, if you decide to include it on the forms. However, you may choose to remain anonymous. Completed questionnaires will be tallied and locked in a secure location. Your questionnaire will be shredded at the end of this study. If you wish to have your form returned to you, please supply your name and address.
I have read the foregoing information and have had the opportunity to ask questions about it and any questions I have been asked have been answered to my satisfaction. I consent voluntarily to be a participant in completing this questionnaire. Please sign below only if you wish to make your identity known to Kathleen Marden and Denise Stoner. It is our goal to protect your anonymity.
