Psychoanalysis Unit


Researching Acting and Mental Health

We are looking for professional actors to take part in a PhD research project

We would like to invite you to take part in our research that aims to elaborate what actors actually do – psychologically speaking – when they get into role, and whether resilience is an important factor in enabling a higher tolerance of the demands of acting. The following research is conducted as part of a PhD research project through University College London in the United Kingdom.

As a participant in this study you would be:

  • Asked to fill out a questionnaire (20 to 25 minutes)
  • Potentially be invited to an interview (about 1 hour)

If you are interested in participating, please have a read through the information sheet linked below:
