The University of Buckingham is looking for people with Spinal Cord Injury to help with their research.  Their previous research has shown that Mindfulness is a successful tool for use in reducing anxiety and improving pain-related quality of life in people with Spinal Cord Injury. However, the techniques that are often used in standard Mindfulness courses (e.g. body scanning, mindful walking) do not necessarily match the needs/physical restrictions experienced by people with Spinal Cord Injury.  Therefore they are working towards designing a tailored mindfulness intervention, specifically adapted to meet the needs of wheelchair users.

Their survey asks people with Spinal Cord Injury who have tried mindfulness, what their perceptions are about the benefits and barriers to Mindfulness and also their recommendations for running a spinal cord injury specific mindfulness course.  

Full ethical approvals have been granted by the School of Psychology and Wellbeing at the University of Buckingham. Further information about the survey/data/ethics are available on the first page of the survey.
