Online mindfulness for stroke carers

Are you over 18 years old and caring for an adult family member or friend who has had a stroke? A four-week online mindfulness course has been developed to support the well-being of stroke carers.

It is part of a research study being carried out by a trainee clinical psychologist at the University of Surrey.

‘Mindfulness’ refers to the skill of paying purposeful and non-judgemental attention to the present moment. Research suggests that practising mindfulness can help with a range of problems and improve well-being.

Taking part in this study would involve completing the course online, from any place you find convenient. This includes reading some brief introductory materials about mindfulness once a week, and listening to guided mindfulness practices daily for approximately 10 – 20 minutes. You would also be required to fill in some questionnaires at various time points.

If you’re interested and would like further information about taking part, please contact Amanda Langé via telephone: 075 0217 0435 or via email: a.lange@surrey.ac.uk. The study has received ethical approval from the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences’ ethics committee at the University of Surrey.

Participation is entirely voluntary, but your contribution would be highly valued.
