Online Self-disclosure Study

A postgraduate student at Queen’s University Belfast invites you to take part in his online study on the self-disclosure of stammering.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE

Andrew Patterson, a postgraduate student from Queen’s University Belfast, is carrying out research into people who stammers' experiences of disclosing, or telling others, that they have a stammer. They would like to look at why, how, when and to whom you make a disclosure and the impact it has on you.

WHO CAN TAKE PART?

Andrew is looking for adults (aged 18 years or over), with all levels of stammering severity, who have on more than one occasion disclosed their stammer to someone else or who are open about their stammering to others. 

WHAT WILL IT INVOLVE?

If you would like to support the research, you will be asked to take part in an informal online interview regarding your experiences. The interview may be conducted via Skype or over another appropriate video conferencing service. Andrew will use what you tell him during the interview to create a dissertation that will add to the body of knowledge regarding stammering in general. 

For more information, email Andrew using the contact details below.
