An Investigation into the Relationship Between Intolerance of Uncertainty and Threat in Everyday Life

*Now Closed*

Trainee Clinical Psychologist Sara Milne is conducting research into the concept of Intolerance of Uncertainty (IU).

IU is basically a feeling of discomfort when faced with situations in which the outcome is unknown. IU has been found to be present across the whole population and varies in degree. Sara is interested in researching in this area because IU has been found to be a risk factor for many different mental health problems. Understanding more about it could therefore improve treatments.

The study involves completing an anonymous online questionnaire, which takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.

On completion participants have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw to win a £25 amazon voucher, there is a one in fifty chance of wining one of these.

This study has received ethical approval from the Faculty of Medical Sciences, Newcastle University.
