Project title: Effects of mindfulness training on autobiographical memory in dysphoric individuals

This study is being conducted as part of my (Aleksandra Eriksen Isham) MSc research project at the School of Psychology and Neuroscience.

We invite undergraduates currently experiencing low mood to participate in a research project examining how mindfulness training affects the way individuals remember personal experiences. Participants in the study should be fluent in English and should be in the age range 18-65 years.

The study includes two groups: one which will take part in an online mindfulness training program over a period of eight weeks, and one which will be invited to complete the mindfulness training program after the study period has ended. All participants will be asked to complete questionnaires about mood state, emotion regulation, and style of thinking and experiencing the world, as well as 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 inclusion criteria of the study. Eligible individuals will be invited to take part in the study.

All collected data will be confidential.
