Dear all, I am writing to ask if any of you would help me with my final year
doctoral research by filling out a  questionnaire, it will take about 15
minutes. I am well aware that many of you may object to it as it is
quantatative. I myself do not find this a natural  choice of research but it
is a requirement of my doctorate. I would ask that you would fill it out
anyway and any comments will be welcomed and incorporated into the write up.
It is based on some qualitative work I undertook last year and expands on
the issue of how and if disabled people can talk about their disability and
factors that may effect this. I found that there were specific ways of self
silencing amoungst the participants. That is I am interested in exploring if
factors such as type of impairment and degree of identification with a
disabled identity effect levels of self silence.
There is an information sheet below with my e-mail address on it. If you are
interested please mail me off list and I will send you the questionnaire.
Thanks for your time, Sarah Supple.


INFORMATION SHEET.

This is to ask you if you would consider participating in some research that
I am undertaking as part of my final year doctoral project. I am a
counselling psychologist in training studying for a doctorate in
psychotherapeutic and counselling psychology at the University of Surrey.  I
am exploring how disabled people talk about themselves regarding their
experiences of disability. I am particularly interested in this area as I am
disabled myself (registered blind).  I also feel this is an important area
for psychology to consider. This is because how psychology thinks about
disabled people can influence current theory about disability as well as
having an affect on the services provided for disabled people. This research
also hopes to investigate whether disabled people's needs and experiences
are being listened to and taken into consideration by the field of
psychology.

What does it involve?

If you decide you would like to participate in this research you will need
to complete the attached questionnaire which should take 15 to 20 minutes.
This will involve answering some questions about your disability, how you
feel about it and how you feel about talking about it.  Once you have done
so place it in the provided addressed envelope and return it to me.

What happens next?

If you decide to fill out the questionnaire once you have returned it you
will have no further contact from me. As your name does not appear anywhere
on the form confidentiality will be maintained at all times. All completed
questionnaires will be stored securely and destroyed after use. However, if
you are interested in the finished research you can contact me at the
address below.
If you find answering the questions in any way distressing you can find out
about support in your area through the organisations given below which
provide information about disability related issues.
(N.B. I am aware this is not helpfull for the members of this list as you
could be anywhere, however I feel confident that most of yu are aware of
organisations in your areas. However, if you have any concerns please
contact me.)
Alternatively you could contact your local GP or counselling centre for
additional support.



What will I do?

I will use the information from the questionnaires to run a statistical
analysis, which will help me to look at patterns in the answers, I receive.
No individual answers will appear in the research, only the over all
outcome. The findings will then be submitted as part of my doctoral
portfolio.  There is a possibility that at some point in the future it may
be submitted to a journal for publication but this depends on the findings.

Thank you for your time.

Yours Sincerely,
Mrs. Sarah Supple.
Counselling Psychologist in training.
