You may have seen my previous post regarding the online and international study I am currently conducting. We are also looking for people with a lived experience of trauma to participate as experts in our research.
Please contact me if you are interested in finding out more. Feel free to share the below with anyone who may be interested.
University of Melbourne
Wanted: People who have experienced psychological trauma
This research project is looking at how someone (a family member, friend, neighbour, concerned community member or a paid carer without specialist qualifications) can help a person who is experiencing extreme distress following a potentially traumatic event.
We are looking for consumers and professionals to participate in our surveys. Everyone’s opinions count equally.
Participants will rate statements about how to help a person experiencing extreme distress following a potentially traumatic event according to whether they should be included in guidelines for the public.
Time commitments: You will be asked to do about 3 online surveys over a period of approximately 4-6 months. No travel or meetings required!
Expertise: To participate you must
- have experienced extreme distress following a potentially traumatic event
- be a member of a consumers’ group or an advocacy organisation (e.g. in Australia this might be blueVoices- Beyond Blue).
To participate you must live or work in one of the following countries:
*Australia *Canada *Denmark
*England *Finland *Ireland
*The Netherlands *New Zealand *Northern Ireland
*Scotland *Sweden *The United States of America
When? This will start in the month, to be advised.
If you are interested in participating, or for further information, please contact Kathryn Chalmers at Melbourne University: firstname.lastname@example.org.
