Rosie Kirkham is a Trainee Clinical Psychologist at Lancaster University and as part of the course she is looking to individually interview clinical psychologists to explore their experiences of compassion satisfaction when working in forensic NHS settings.

The findings of this research will be useful in identifying what drives clinical psychologists to work in this field, and what may increase or diminish compassion satisfaction when working in forensic settings.

You are welcome to take part if you are a clinical psychologist currently working in an NHS forensic service, and have at least two years qualified experience of working in this field.

The study will involve an interview that will last approximately one hour and will be audio recorded. The interview can be arranged at a time and place convenient to you, either in person or over the telephone.

For more details to help you choose whether or not to participate please download the information sheet and copy of the consent form.

The study has been reviewed and approved by the Faculty of Health and Medicine Research Ethics Committee at Lancaster University.

If you are interested in taking part in the study or have any other questions, please contact Rosie via one of the methods below:
