Recruitment for the study ended in July 2017. A total of 16 young people chose to take part in the study, and all have indicated that they would be happy to be contacted for follow up interviews over the next year.
Follow-up interviews will take place in two more stages between the end of August 2017 and end of June 2018 (Phase 2 = 8/17-12/17 and Phase 3 = 2/18-6/18). As noted elsewhere on this site, young people will have the opportunity to document their lives through art, journaling, or photography over the study period.
Now that recruitment has ended, I have had the opportunity to draw up a brief document outlining information about the sample and some preliminary interpretations of the interviews. If you are interested in learning more about the young people working in this study and the practice feedback that I have discovered, please read the briefing document for Phase One.
