Another really interesting study exploring the health benefit of connections between people and nature

Subject Title:
Participate in a research study looking into the role of nature in reducing anxiety.

Dear colleagues

Our names are Jessica Nguyen and Jedda Crabtree from the QUT School of Psychology and Counselling. We are currently undertaking research into the role of the natural world in reducing anxiety.

If you’d like to help us in this study, we are looking for participants over the age of 18 who are experiencing some level of anxiety. Participation involves:

• Undertaking a 15 minute online questionnaire at the beginning of the project.
• Listening to two 10 – 15 minute audio recordings, one per week over a period of two weeks. The audio recordings will be sent to you by email and each will consist of a guided imagery experience. You will be asked to fill out a short 2 minute online questionnaire before listening to the audio recording and the same short online questionnaire after listening to the audio recording (4 minutes total).

Further details on the study and how to participate can be found by clicking on the following link:

We are also interested in interviewing participants about their experiences. If you would like to participate in an interview, please either leave your contact details in the relevant section of the survey above or contact one of the researchers below. Please note that not all participants who express interest in being interviewed about their experiences will be interviewed.

Should you wish to participate or have any questions, please contact one of the researchers via email.

Please note that this study has been approved by the QUT Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 1400000683).

Many thanks for your consideration of this request.
