Take part in a self-esteem group as part of a research study

4 January 2017

Do you experience difficulties with self-esteem? Do low levels of self-esteem sometimes make you feel anxious or depressed? If the answer is yes to either of these questions, you may want to take part in a research study into the effectiveness of an exciting new intervention for improving self-esteem.

Take part in a self-esteem group as part of a research study

Who is it for?

Undergraduate and postgraduate students at UCL.

What will it involve?

The intervention will consist of four, 2-hour group sessions that will run weekly at UCL, followed by a final 2-hour group, one month later. The study will start in February 2017.

You will also be required to complete some short questionnaires on four separate occasions.

What's in it for me?

If you decide to participate in the study, we hope that you will find the group sessions helpful and interesting.

The information gathered during this study will help to inform our understanding of treatment for domain-specific self-esteem. We anticipate that this will be a step towards improving interventions for self-esteem difficulties in the future.
