Physical Activity Program Research – Participants Needed. Serena MacLeod, MSc, MBPsS, DipSW is a Trainee Sport and Exercise Psychologist with the British Psychological Society who provides psychological support to individuals with disabilities (developmental, intellectual, physical).
As part of her applied doctorate research study to become an accredited Sport and Exercise Psychologist, she is looking to interview individuals with acquired disabilities (such as amputation) who have been discharged from rehabilitation within the last 12 months regarding the facilitators and barriers of engaging in physical activity.
The findings of the study will contribute to creating an inclusive based physical activity program for individuals with acquired disabilities to bridge the gap between discharge from rehabilitation and engaging in physical activity.
It is well accepted that physical activity is beneficial to both physical and mental wellbeing following surgery and rehabilitation, and can improve healing and the return to a normal life. An inclusive physical activity program encouraging that can only be beneficial to amputees and others with acquired disabilities..
Do you have acquired disabilities, are over 18 and have been discharged from rehabilitation within the last 9 months? If so, please can you spare 45 minutes to help Serena with this valuable physical activity program research.

(NB: Please note that Serena recently changed her criteria from individuals with acquired disabilities that have been discharged from rehabilitation in the last 9 months to the last 12 months.)
