Jan Grainger - Lesbian Identity Formation within a Life History of Sexual Violence

Dear all,

My name is Jan Grainger, and I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and doctoral researcher at the Metanoia Institute. I am recruiting for participants to take part in a study that aims to provide understanding of how lesbian women reflect upon their lesbian identity in the context of sexual violence being part of their life history. The aims of this research are to give voice to this under-represented group and to inform the clinical thinking of counsellors and psychotherapists working with this demographic.

Participants will be asked to take part in an interview that will last approximately 60-90 minutes. The interview will be semi-structured, with some questions being followed by prompt questions. This is to support the focus of the research and to give space for what you want to say in response to what is asked.

If you would like to participate, or have any further queries, please feel free to contact me by email (jan.grainger@metanoia.ac.uk).
