A postgraduate student at Queen’s University Belfast invites you to take part in his 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 the experiences of stammerers who disclose to others that they have a stammer. This includes why, how, when and to whom a stammerer makes such a disclosure and the impact upon them of having done so.
WHO CAN TAKE PART?
Andrew is looking for adults (18 years or over), with all levels of stammering severity, in Northern Ireland, 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 meet with Andrew in strict confidence to take part in an informal interview regarding your experiences. He will use what you tell him in to create a dissertation that will add to the body of knowledge regarding stammering in general.
To take part, or if you have any
questions, please email Andrew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
