Do you experience obsessive-compulsive difficulties?

On behalf of the Lancaster University Clinical Psychology Doctorate programme, Lucy Rathbone is looking for participants to take part in a study examining the role of emotions in obsessive-compulsive experiences. Participation involves completing an online questionnaire; this is likely to take around 20 minutes to complete.

The study aims to develop a better understanding of the emotional factors that underlie individual experiences of obsessions and compulsions.  An increased understanding of such experiences may inform the development of more effective support for people with difficulties of this nature.  Further information about the aims of the study will be provided once you have completed the questionnaire.

Before deciding to take part you will have the opportunity to read some more detailed information about the study and to check that you meet the criteria necessary to participate.  You will then be asked to consent to taking part.  Once you have given your consent the survey will begin and you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire; this will ask you to think about different emotions and obsessive-compulsive experiences.  Your participation in the study will remain anonymous.  You will only be able to complete this questionnaire once.

If you are thinking of taking part in this study, and would like to contact the researcher for any reason, please email Lucy Rathbone at or telephone +441542 594083.
