New Yoga and Pilates Research Project – Calling All Woman Aged 35+

Georgia Treneman-Evans at CAR is conducting a new study for her Master’s programme at UWE Bristol on the impact of Yoga and Pilates for women. If you’re female aged 35+ and are able to take part in an online Yoga or Pilates course, please contact her on georgia2.treneman-evans@live.uwe.ac.uk by Sunday 5 May if you’re interested.

The entire study is online and you will be entered into a raffle with a chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher as a thank you for taking part in the project.

Please note: You will not be able to participate in this project if you have practised Yoga and/or Pilates in the last 3 months.

Invitation to try online support for people with visible differences

CAR are looking for volunteers to test a new online programme that helps people view themselves more positively.

The online programme is designed for adults with conditions that affect how they look, and encourages people to focus on what their bodies can do, rather than how they look. As a thank you for taking part, participants will be entered into a £150 prize draw.

If you would like to take part, or want to find out more, please contact Ella Guest via ella.guest@uwe.ac.uk or 0117 32 87045.

Informing others of (in)visible difference

Do you have a physical difference that is not typically visible to others, e.g. due to the position on the body, clothes or make-up? Are you aged 18 or above?

If so, we are conducting an interview study to find out more about your experience of telling other people that you have a visible difference. Findings will help increase understanding, and inform a psychological intervention. Interviews can be done over the phone or Skype, or in person.

For more information and to express interest, please visit the study webpage.

Looks and Life: How does visible difference influence daily life?

If you are 18 or over and have any form of visible difference, you can take part in a short online survey study. The questionnaire looks at the everyday choices that people with visible differences make, in relation to their looks. Participants can enter a prize draw to win one of ten £10 Amazon vouchers to thank you for your time and effort.

Results will help shape a psychological intervention we are developing at CAR. To take the survey, and more information, please go to the study webpage.
