A University College London (UCL) and Anna Freud Centre PhD level study is currently recruiting school-age children between the ages of 6 and 11 who have been parentally bereaved within the last three years. Participants should be fluent in English, living in the UK, and have not received more than 3 sessions of psychotherapy/counselling.
Participants will be asked to create short stories using toys, props, and verbal language. No personal/intrusive questions will be asked of the child. Allocated time for their participation should be approx. 45-60 mins. Parents will also be given three short questionnaires to complete which are estimated to take 5-10 minutes.
This project has received ethical approval from University College London & is in conjunction with the Anna Freud Centre.
The study will take place in participant’s homes or at the offices of the Anna Freud Centre in Hampstead, London (NW3). The researcher is wiling to travel within London and its surround boroughs.
We hope you and your child can take part of and contribute to this very important piece of research to the fields of Psychology, Psychoanalysis, Child Development, and Family Studies.
