Hi everyone! 

Thank you for considering my research. My name is Nathan, I’m a Trainee Clinical psychologist, and I’m the lead researcher for this study on Chronic Pain. Below is an advert for the research.

Please get in touch with any questions you may have.

Many thanks,

Nathan


Do you experience Chronic Pain?

Chronic Pain is any sort of pain that has lasted longer than 3 months.

If this is your experience then we'd like to invite you to take part in our research study.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT – spoken as a word) is about as successful as any other psychological treatment for Chronic Pain and we want to see if we can improve it further. That’s why we are inviting you to participate in this study – to explore how an ACT-based self-help strategy might help you live a more valued and meaningful life.

For between 15 and 17 weeks you will be asked to complete some questionnaires and speak with the researcher over video call or the telephone about your experiences. The interesting bit is that you will take part in an online guided 8-week self-help based intervention.

This can be done from any internet enabled device such as a laptop, PC, tablet, or phone and will be done in accordance with UK Government social distancing regulations with weekly remote support and contact from the research team.

Afterwards you will have the chance to tell us exactly what you think.

Are you -

• Aged 18 and over and currently living in the UK.

• Able to provide informed consent.

• Computer literate with access to the internet and a valid email address.

• Able to read English sufficient for engaging with self-help materials and questionnaires
