My name is Liberty Black and I’m currently in my third year of an undergraduate Psychology degree at the University of Derby. For my dissertation, I’m exploring student carers’ experiences of resilience and self-compassion in relation to levels of social support. To take part, participants must be aged 18-25 years and be providing unpaid care to an elderly/ill family member or relative whilst studying within a higher education institution. Participants are invited to take part in an interview to discuss their experiences and the study would also explore how these factors affect their ability to deal with education commitments.
