Call for interviewees: how people with MS think about their goals
10 August 2023
As part of her doctoral thesis at Royal Holloway, trainee Clinical Psychologist, Tilly Mastroianni, is recruiting people with Multiple Sclerosis for short video interviews.
Supervised by Professor Andy MacLeod, Tilly’s research investigates the relationship between self-belief, thought processes around achieving goals, and mood in people living with MS. By gaining a better understanding of how people with MS think about their goals, this will hopefully help practitioners improve the advice and psychological therapies they can offer in future.
The one-off interviews over Microsoft Teams are expected to take just 45–60 minutes. They will involve questions about participants’ feelings and coping mechanisms, and a short task related to personal goals.
Results will be anonymised and encrypted. And you can change your mind about participating at any time – before, during, or even after the interview. So if you have MS and are interested in dedicating just one hour of your time to play a crucial role in advancing MS research, why not sign up as an interviewee?
Wherever you are on your MS journey, your input will be valuable. If you tick the box on the consent form, you could even win £50 or £25 in the prize draw!
