Creative Behaviour, Male Chronic Illness, and Perceived Stress: An Exploratory Study

We have been contacted by a graduate student at the University of Saskatchewan, Tara Labuik, who is looking to learn more about the relationship between creative behaviour and stress in men with chronic illness.

A relationship between creative behaviour and stress in women with chronic illness has been discovered and she is interested in determining whether there is a similar relationship between creative behaviour and stress in men with chronic illness. Her research has been approved by the Research Ethics Board at the University of Saskatchewan and is in the data collection stage.
