Researcher Cathy Watts is a mature student at King’s College, London on the MSc in War & Psychiatry. As a BACP accredited counsellor currently employed by an Employee Assistance Provider, she also provides counselling for private clients.
She has been a student of Prem Rawat for many years, and has completed his learning programmes: The Peace Education Programme (PEP) and Peace Education And Knowledge (PEAK). For her research dissertation Cathy has gained ethical approval from King’s College to explore the Peace Education Programme’s effect on resilience and trauma, as ‘being aware of one’s inner strength is one of the principal objectives of the program’ (Damooei Global Research, 2014). She will address this subject by exploring the question:
★ Does participation in the Peace Education Programme (of The Prem Rawat Foundation) have any impact on resilience in individuals who have been exposed to conflict-related trauma?

a) completed the Peace Education Programme
b) be over 18 years of age
c) been exposed to some kind of conflict-related trauma during your lifetime, this could include for example:
As a research participant, your identity will be anonymised as far as possible. You will be assigned a unique code so that you do not have to give your name. The researcher will email you in return with her phone number and a variety of available slots for a phone interview lasting up to 60 minutes. If you are not comfortable to give your phone number, you can call her instead, using an ID blocking code to retain your anonymity. The researcher will record this confidential interview with you. You do not have to respond to any questions that you do not wish to, and you can end the call at any time without having to give a reason. The recording will be kept confidential and securely stored by the researcher, to be analysed solely for this project. The recording will be transcribed and deleted by 31st July 2019, and at no time will Peace Partners or anyone else have access to these recordings or transcripts.
The first 6 participants who apply and fit the criteria requested above will be selected, and for those who complete the phone call, the researcher will email an Amazon voucher worth £25 to compensate you for your time. You will still have 14 days after your phone interview in which to withdraw from the project if you wish.
To apply for this role or for any further information or questions please feel welcome to contact the researcher directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants will be emailed a detailed Information Sheet to read and will be required to complete and return a Consent Form. Participants can be assured that their part in this research will not only be valuable, but will be kept as simple and enjoyable as possible.
