PP and relationships - research project

Hello all,

Just wanted to let you know about an interesting research project that I have just taken part in. It is part of a doctorate in clinical psychology, focusing on the impact of and on relationships. So the researcher is looking to interview both pp sufferers and a close family member or friend (my husband, in my case).

I found the interview process very interesting and helpful, and I will be keen to see the research report next year. Anyway, if you are interested in taking part let me know and I can put you in touch.

Thanks

  • Hi there

    I would be very interested to take part. Could you please put me in touch with them?

  • I would be interested

  • I would possibly be interested. Whilst I'm not sure my husband would be keen to take part, I think my dad might be, he is very close to me and has been throughout my experience of pp.

  • I would be interested too but am not sure who the other person could be.

  • Hi everyone,

    It's fantastic you're interested in taking part in research projects, great stuff! I'm not sure if it's the same one that was posted on the APP website last year, but if it is the details are below. I would say though that it's best to be careful when considering taking part & make sure it's received the correct ethical approval etc. All research projects posted on the APP website or Facebook page have been checked & approved by APP.

    Thanks all x

    Here's the one posted last year:
