Perinatal Psychological Distress – closed – included as example

Proposal Details

Proposal Summary

​I am a transactional analysis psychotherapist studying for a PhD at The University of Salford, United Kingdom. My research is on TA psychotherapy as a suitable treatment option for perinatal psychological distress (which I define as depression, stress, and/or anxiety). I am looking for TA psychotherapists who work with women suffering from any of these three conditions who might want to become part of my research. I need a maximum of 15 women participants (clients) who have had TA psychotherapy or who are in the process of, or about to begin, who would be willing to be interviewed by me at the end of their therapy.

Your participation would require you to propose my research to your clients and to give the relevant paperwork to those clients who have expressed an interest in participating. Your work with your client should not change in any way. Also, your client’s confidentiality is paramount, and the only person who would know that you are working with her would be me because I will perform the interview with your client. All data I collect from your client will be anonymized to ensure confidentiality. The interview is not designed to be onerous and should take around 1-1.5 hours.

At present, it seems that few psychotherapists see this particular client group, and there is no research at present on TA as a suitable treatment option. There is also little research, per se, about this condition, so my project will help to enhance our knowledge of the condition as well as to address the gap in TA research.

If you are willing to be a part of this research, please contact me: Emma Haynes, by email at [email protected] or by phone at (+44) 07771 518699
