Does your child have Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Totalis or Alopecia Universalis?
Are they between 8 and 12 years old?
Would you and your child be happy to talk about your experiences with alopecia?
If so, Anita Raman, a student from the University of Sheffield, invites you and your child to take part in a research study that aims to explore the experiences of children with alopecia and also the experience of their parent (or guardian). This is an area that has not yet been studied in young children.
Anita is conducting the study as part of her training to become a clinical psychologist in the hope that it will help inform future guidance. The study will involve an interview with you and your child.
The study has ethical approval from the University of Sheffield.
Interview can be conducted at the participants' home or the University of Sheffield. Ideally, Anita is looking to recruit families from within a 100 mile radius of the university to keep expenses to a minimum.
If you are interested in receiving further information about the study, please contact Anita Raman at email@example.com or write to her at the following address: Anita Raman, Clinical Psychology Unit, University of Sheffield, Western Bank, Sheffield, S10 2TN.
