London, to help with a study on Compassion and Cervical Screening.

shame play a role in managing any difficulties experienced during cervical
screening. She’ll be using the results collected to inform interventions that
could help women attend their cervical screening appointments.

Compassion and Cervical Screening: Survey Study
Nicolette Gregg, an MSc student from Royal Holloway, University of London, is running a research study looking at how self-compassion, compassion from others, shame and self-criticism can help or hinder routine cervical screening attendance for women who have been sexually assaulted.
We’re looking for volunteers to help Nicolette research this, in partnership with My Body Back. It involves attending a focus group of 4 to 8 women in June 2019, and we’ll be working to develop theory and practice to help women attend cervical screenings in a safe and compassionate way.

It’s an exciting time to be part of My Body Back Project: we’ve just opened our clinic in Glasgow, and have attained full charitable status with the Charity Commission to allow us to claim Gift Aid on donations. We have big plans to expand our services to more cities across the UK and, long-term, internationally, so that we can reach the thousands of women who desperately need the support we provide. But to do that, we urgently need funds.
