Title: An Investigation into Social Support, Possessions & Obsessions

The amount of social support people receive (or don’t receive) can have a big impact on their thoughts and experiences. We are interested in the amount and type of social support experienced by people who have difficulties with a) over acquiring and keeping possessions, b) obsessional and compulsive problems, and c) those without problems with either.

We are looking for volunteers aged 18 years and over.

Participating in the research will involve a 15-minute telephone discussion and online questionnaires taking approximately 30-40 minutes although for some people it may take longer. Paper questionnaires can also be sent by post if you prefer.

Can you help us? We are researchers from the Clinical Psychology Department at The University of Oxford, and we are interested in learning more about the link between difficult interpersonal memories and emotional responses.

We are interested in hearing from people who identify as having obsessional and compulsive problems, and those without current experiences of mental health difficulties. 

We are hoping to develop a deeper understanding of factors that may contribute to distress in this area, with the hope of tailoring and improving treatments for these individuals.

We are looking for volunteers aged 18 years and over. Participating in the research will take approximately 1 hour, and will involve a short telephone discussion, an experimental task via video, and completion of some questionnaires.
