Exploration of the impact of culture, language and testing experience on a neuropsychological assessment

Thursday 2 July 2015

As part of her doctoral programme in Clinical Psychology at the Salomons Campus of Canterbury Christ Church University, Claire Haddlesey, a Trainee Clinical Psychologist, is conducting a research project aiming to explore the performance and experiences of people with English as a second language on a cognitive assessment. This research project has received ethical approval from Salomons, Canterbury Christ Church University ethics panel.

She would like to meet with people whose first language is of a South Asian origin (for example: Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Urdu, Tamil, Punjabi). She would ideally like to meet with people who have been speaking English for under five years or over 20 years. People with a first language from a South Asian origin have been chosen, due to large numbers of South Asian languages spoken in the UK.

The study would involve initially completing a language history questionnaire and a screening questionnaire, which can be done online or in person. This would be followed by two face-to-face psychology assessments and a brief interview. The assessment stage will take approximately 1 ½ - 2 hours.

If you would be interested in taking part in this research or would like more information, please contact Claire Haddlesey, Trainee Clinical Psychologist, on c.haddlesey505@canterbury.ac.uk or leave a message for Claire Haddlesey on 0333 011 7070.
