Health outcomes of adjustment to relationship breakdowns
1. Participant Information
Why take part in this study? We are interested in how you adjust to a relationship breakdown and the impact it has on your health.
What will the study involve?
After reading the participant information and giving informed consent each participant will be directed to a questionnaire booklet via a web-link, where you will be asked to complete a series of questions.
Although the research is about relationship breakdowns the only question that we will ask about the event is; how long ago did the relationship end? How long were you in the relationship for? However please bear in mind that the topic of discussion may be sensitive to some people, therefore do not complete this study if you feel that you might be effected.
All responses are completely anonymous and confidential, and when completing the survey, you are free to omit any questions or sections that do not apply to you or you do not wish to answer.
All participants will be identified by a unique reference code which you will be provided with before you start the questionnaire. Those who request a hard-copy will receive a brown envelope in which to put your questionnaire and seal with the unique reference code clearly displayed on the envelope. You then have the option of handing it in to the researcher or sending it into the university via the pre-paid envelope.
I am interested in your opinions/beliefs and I will not be making any personal judgements about you; the study will be conducted in a professional manner. All participant details will be kept confidential and you have two weeks after submitting your entry to withdraw from the research.
All your details will remain anonymous and you will be connected to your questionnaire only by a unique referencing number.
How long will participation take? The questionnaire booklet is expected to take approximately 25-35mins to complete.
Researcher Contact Details- Please feel free to contact the researcher if you require any additional information or have any questions regarding the research. If you would like to request a hard-copy of the study please just ask.
