Research into self compassion. Win £50!!

We received this email which I wanted to share with you- it’s on an interesting research project about self compassion after brain injury. You also have the opportunity to win £50 if you complete it.

Dear Headway Glasgow

I am a third year clinical psychology doctorate student at the University of Liverpool and I am currently in the recruitment stage of my thesis. My project is exploring the relationship between self-compassion and emotional distress in people with lived experience of traumatic brain injury. The study is an online questionnaire so can be available to people nationwide. There is also a prize draw for all participants who complete the study in which 10 people will win a £50 voucher which will be emailed to them.

I was wondering if this is something your group would be happy to share on your social media and/or possibly email to potentially interested parties?

I have recently been in touch with Headway UK who have approved this project and are happy for me to be contacting the independent groups.

If you would like to share this on social media or email it out to potentially interested parties, the link for the live questionnaire is here> CLICK

Thanks in anticipation,
