Exploring Social Isolation, Loneliness, and Social Asymmetry as predictors of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Multiple Sclerosis

Gary Tracy, a PhD student from NUI Maynooth, is conducting a study looking at how people act in response to receiving a diagnosis of a chronic medical illness (i.e., Multiple Sclerosis).

Aim of study

This study is interested in evaluating if posttraumatic stress is common among individuals who have been diagnosed with a chronic illness. Additionally, this study will consider how factors such as loneliness and/or social factors such as social isolation can influence how likely a person is to experience symptoms of posttraumatic stress following a diagnosis of a chronic illness.
