Self-Compassion in Suicidal Ideation Among Lesbians: Study Seeks Participants
This study looks at how self compassion can help in the reduction of suicidal thoughts and behaviours.
Federation University Master of Psychology (Clinical) students are currently running a study that is investigating how self-compassion can help to reduce suicidal thoughts and behaviours among gay, lesbian and bisexual adults.
Mental health, including suicide, is an important concern for gay, lesbian, and bisexual adults. The majority of research has investigated the risk factors for suicide. Few studies have investigated the positive aspects of individuals that can help to protect them against suicide. This study focuses on how self-compassion can aid in reducing levels of suicidal ideation and behaviours.
If you volunteer to participate in this research you will be asked to complete a questionnaire, which will take approximately 15 minutes. The questionnaire asks for some background information, as well as questions relating to self-compassion, belongingness needs and feeling like a burden on others, depression, and suicidal thoughts and behaviours.
Your name is not required on any of the questionnaires, hence protecting your anonymity. When completed, your anonymous questionnaire will form part of a larger database, from which only group data will be reported.
