Research Project- Psychological Trauma- Post Traumatic Growth

Hello !

My name is Georgina and I am currently studying Psychological Trauma at Chester University.

I am currently carrying out a research study titled “A grounded theory study to explore the dimensions of Post Traumatic Growth in stroke survivors”.

The purpose of carrying out my study is to explore the phenomena of Post Traumatic Growth. The theory of Post Traumatic Growth suggests that survivors of trauma have potential to experience positive change after a trauma. There is lots of literature available which validates this theory, however, there is not a lot looking at survivors of stroke. I want to explore the notion of Post Traumatic Growth with survivors of Stroke and see if your experience can relate to this theory.

For this study, I need volunteer stroke survivors to take part in a 1 hour long interview with me. Volunteers should be people who:

1. Have had a stroke.
2. Are fully discharged from the NHS.
3. Are over the age of 18 and speak English.

If you are interested in taking part in this study, please contact me on my email address below. I will then send you a participant information sheet to help you make up your mind.

Thank you in advance,

Georgina Watkinson
