Apologies to all those who have already received and responded to my request. I need 100 participants each Armenians and non-Armenians for this important research.
Please be assured that any information received will be treated with confidentiality. I will ensure Anonymity by not including the names of the participants when e-mailing the questionnaires for statistical analysis. The included demographics provide all the required information. I am bound by the British Psychological Society Code of Conduct, Ethical Principles and Guidelines governing research on the internet.
I am collaborating in a wide research on trauma and forgiveness aimed at finding out the relationship between trauma, healing and forgiveness. Previous research has shown that those who discover a new meaning, a new positive lesson, and forgive, heal faster from their trauma.
Participants will be taken both from the UK Armenian Community, as well as from non-Armenian people. The results will be compared with those of Armenians in the United States and the Republic of Armenia, while the results of UK non Armenians will be compared with other non Armenians such as Americans. The research is led by Dr. Ani Kalayjian author of Forgiveness and Reconciliation (Psychological Pathways to Conflict Transformation and Peace Building).
There are two Questionnaires attached. Please first fill in the Harvard Trauma Questionnaire, noting the Demographics at the end of the page and then the Heartland Forgiveness Scale and e-mail back to me. There are no right or wrong answers. Names will not be included.
Your cooperation in taking part in this research will be very much appreciated.
Please let me know if you are unable to open either of the attachments.
With many thanks and best wishes.
