Clinical doctorate students needed

Post by jesshullbcu » Sat Mar 17, 2018 1:40 pm

Hi clinpsych forum users,

My name is Jessica Hull and I am a third year BCU psychology student carrying out a dissertation on the wellbeing of clinical doctorate students and I need a lot more participants!

I have received ethical approval from the Birmingham City University ethics committee and my supervisor is Dr Athfah Akhtar for this research project.

The research project is intended to seek out what coping strategies that students undertaking clinical doctorate training are using to prevent the risk of burnout, and whether these coping strategies are successful. The results from this dissertation will help to recommend coping strategies to future students undertaking the clinical psychology doctoral training as well as other professional training courses. Upon consent students will be required to complete two questionnaires, the first is the Maslach Burnout Inventory–Human Services Survey (Maslach, Leiter and Jackson, 1996) designed to measure burnout rate, and a second, the coping strategies questionnaire by Carver et al (1989) which aims to seek out which coping strategies are being used. The questionnaires will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and individuals will be able to complete the questionnaires at their convenience because the questionnaires will be accessed via the Bristol Online Survey Tool.

If any individuals wish to email me at any time, my email is

Please follow the link below for the questionnaires,
