We are looking for participants for a study examining the characteristics of positive memories in individuals experiencing low mood. The study is being conducted as part of my (Aleksandra Eriksen Isham) PhD project at the School of Psychology and Neuroscience.
Participants should have been experiencing low mood for at least the past week, be fluent in English and in the age range 18-65 years old.
In the first part of the study participants will be asked to complete questions about autobiographical memory, trait mindfulness, emotion regulation and their past and present mental health. In the second part of the study participants will be asked to complete a memory diary.
Individuals who are interested in participating in the study can email Aleksandra Eriksen Isham. They will then receive an email with additional information about the study to let them decide whether they want to participate in it. Individuals who agree to participate will be invited to complete a screening questionnaire to assess whether they meet the study inclusion criteria. Individuals who meet the inclusion criteria will be invited to participate in the study.
Individuals who are invited to participate in the study will receive monetary reward for their participation: £8 for completing part one of the study and £8 for completing part two of the study.
