I am Kerrie Nuttall, a third year Psychology undergraduate requesting your time and participation in a study regarding the relationship between managing and experiencing different emotions and the experience of interpersonal difficulties.

The study will involve you completing a set of questionnaires that should require roughly 20 minutes to complete. Some of these questionnaires may be sensitive in nature. All participant data collected shall be anonymised and will only be available to those involved in this project to ensure maximum confidentiality.
