|We would like to invite You to participate
in this research project.
|You should only participate if you want to;
choosing not to take part will not disadvantage
you in any way. Before you decide whether you
want to take part, it is important for you to
read the following information carefully and
discuss it with others if you wish. Ask us if
there is anything that is not clear or if you
would like more information.
|This study is intended to explore ways of
assisting individuals in managing anxiety associated
with examinations and we are recruiting student
participants who have examinations in the near
future. If you agree to take part you will be
asked to complete questionnaires and to attend
two one-hour sessions over a three week period
where you will have electrodes attached to your
head for recording the electrical activity of
your brain and monitors recording your heart-rate
and skin conductance. You will listen via headphones
to recorded information that is intended to
teach you strategies for coping better with
examination stress. You will be randomly allocated
to a particular experimental group and for some
participants this recorded information will
include a hypnosis induction procedure and for
others relaxation training, both of which are
thought to facilitate this type of training.
The procedures will be fully explained to you
and you will have the opportunity to ask questions.
You will also be encouraged to practise in your
own time what you have learned in the formal
sessions You will be free to withdraw from the
study at any point without giving a reason.
All information we gather from you will be recorded
in a coded form and will not be revealed to
any one in a way that would allow you to be
identified. If you decide to take part you will
be given this information sheet to keep and
be asked to sign a consent form.
| It is up to you to decide whether to take
part or not. If you decide to take part you
are still free to withdraw at any time and without
giving a reason.
