Research title: What are the experiences of Black African clients who have dropped out of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) early?

Hello. My name is Rusha Mohamed, I’m a Master’s student at the University of Hertfordshire and an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist.

I’m currently conducting a piece of research exploring Black African clients’ experiences of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The aim of the study is to gain a better understanding of why they are dropping out of CBT treatment earlier than planned at a higher rate than people of other ethnic backgrounds. This will hopefully provide us with further insight into how to improve our services for this demographic.

I am hoping to recruit participants who are:
- Black African
- Aged 25-45
- Have had at least one treatment session of CBT and dropped out earlier than planned
- Permanently live in the Uk
- Discharged from mental health services at least one year ago
- Not currently experiencing significant mental health difficulties

Please get in touch if you meet the inclusion criteria or please share with others who may be interested in taking part.
