Research into how people experience a lack of imagined future, or a sense of impending doom after trauma.

I am looking for people who would like to participate in a research study on how people experience the idea of the future after a traumatic experience. I am looking for people who have experienced an inability to imagine a future, or who have had a belief that the future will not happen or have a sense of impending doom. Sometimes this symptom is called a sense of foreshortened future.
You can currently have this symptom or have had it in the past.

You will be asked to participate in a recorded interview of an estimated time of 1 – 1.5 hours where you will be asked to talk about your personal experiences of having this symptom.

You will need to be over the age of 18, living in England or Wales, not currently engaged with mental health services or counselling that pertains to your traumatic experiences, and feel sufficiently grounded in your experiences to be able to talk about them without causing undue distress. You do not have to have been diagnosed with PTSD or trauma, you only need to have experienced an event that you consider to be traumatic either in adulthood or childhood.

If you are interested in taking part in the study, please contact me (Lorelei Green) 1524308@chester.ac.uk for a participant information sheet.

If you have found anything in this advert to be distressing, then please access help via your GP, your current mental health supports or your counsellor. You can also access private counselling via www.psychologytoday.com and www.counselling-directory.org.uk and www.bacp.co.uk. This advertisement expires on 31st May 2020

Thank you
