Research study - self-compassion, coping strategies & wellbeing in fibromyaligia

Research opportunity: Take part in an online survey into the role of self-compassion, coping strategies and well-being in fibromyalgia. 

Self-compassion is often thought of as acting kindly towards ourselves. This project aims to explore whether self-compassion plays a role in coping strategies and emotional well-being in people with fibromyalgia. This is important because it may help researchers to understand the role of certain psychological therapies in helping to support the emotional well-being of people who experience physical health conditions, like fibromyalgia. 

If you agree to take part, you will be asked to complete an online survey. You will be asked some demographic information about your gender, age, ethnicity and about the duration of your fibromyalgia symptoms. You will then be asked questions about self-compassion, pain acceptance, fibromyalgia symptoms, emotional well-being and coping strategies. This will take around 20 minutes to complete. To take part, you must over 18 years of age and have a fibromyalgia diagnosis. This can be a diagnosis made by a professional or you may be self-diagnosed.  

Dr Gemma Evans from the University of Chester is conducting this research project, which has been reviewed by a University Research Ethics Committee. Further information about the project can be found here.
