Seeking Long Term Members of These Forums for an Interview/Research Study

Recommended Posts


Hello all, I would like to extend an invitation to long-term users of these forums to participate in an interview discussing their experiences and the process of grief online. As well as what they understand their ‘role’ in these communities to be. Long-term users offer a unique lens into online support groups and their experiences into the nature of these groups and how they affect the grief journey have not been extensively documented or analysed.

Participants will participate in a semi-structured interview about their experiences using the forum, how they feel it affected their grief journey, and whether or not this changed over time. These interviews are informal and loosely structured to allow participants to discuss their experiences with as much or as little depth as they wish – as such no exact timeframe on interviews can be given.

Interviews will be conducted over phone/Skype or a similar program and recorded, participants will be given a consent form to sign detailing their rights to privacy, the steps that will be taken to ensure their privacy is protected, and their right to withdraw at any time. As well as this, participants will be made aware of the questions before the interview takes place (although the exact wordings of the question may change). No deception of any kind is used in this study.

Ideal participants would be users of the forum for 2 years or longer, and who have not been bereaved violently or suffered the loss of a child.

Eligible candidates can get in contact with me through private message or emailing Joshwblack@gmail.com if they are interested. Feel free to get in touch with me with any other queries about any part of the research.
