Research Study: An exploration of psychotherapeutic processes in working with clients who are experiencing chronic illness and pain
Do you work with clients who live with chronic illness and pain?
If you have experience in this area, you are being invited to take part in a research study which will explore your expertise on the treatment of people with chronic illness and pain.
Why participate in this study?
Chronic pain and illness affect every aspect of the person’s life. Pain is a signal, or feedback that there is an undesired process going on in our body that needs attention. However, when this signal does not stop, the pain can become chronic. Emotions and pain are interlinked in our body, and psychical pain can dial up the physical pain. Through your engagement with this study, you will be providing a greater understanding of the psychotherapeutic processes involved with working with clients who live with chronic illness and pain.
Who can participate?
Accredited psychotherapists with two or more years’ experience working with clients who experience chronic illness and pain.
What will be involved?
You will be invited to take part in a one-to-one interview with the researcher that will last approximately one hour at a time of your convenience. Due to government restrictions, interviews will be conducted online via the researchers secure Microsoft Teams account.
