The role of humour and other personal strengths in supporting wellbeing of autistic/AS adults - research participants needed

Tue 1 Jun 2021 4:46pm

Hans Asperger described autistic individuals as humourless... Will you help me prove him wrong by participating in my research study?

Hello

Link to the video introduction from me:

My name is Alicja Nocon and I am an autistic postgraduate student at the University of East London. I am looking to involve autistic/AS adults in my research study as part of my Master’s degree in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology. I am hoping to publish my research in an academic journal.

The purpose of the study is to understand the role of humour and other personal strengths in supporting and increasing wellbeing and resilience in autistic/AS adults - it's a fun and positive study. It involves participating in a 7-day "three funny things" activity and completing two surveys, one before and one after the funny things programme. Instructions for the activity will be provided and participants will receive a few nudges by email to help them remember about the activity and stay motivated.

For more details, please refer to the participant information sheet: https://uelpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/CP/File.php?F=F_eRGtHAnfvduO20e

If you have any questions please leave in the comment below or send me an email: u2056556@uel.ac.uk

 

Ready to get started? Here’s the first survey: https://uelpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9pOuL3mIZXtekLk

 

Thank you so much for reading this and I hope you choose to take part in my study
