Research Participant Recruitment: Goal setting practices among health and physical activity professionals

 posted by | 10/06/2024

The sport and exercise psychology team (Dr. Rebecca Hawkins, Dr. Matthew Bird, Dr. Patricia Jackman, and Miss Alice Lawrence) within the School of Sport and Exercise Science are currently conducting research, which focuses on goal setting practices among health and physical activity professionals in physical activity promotion. We are looking to recruit participants who are 18 years and above, and a health or physical activity professional involved in advising, recommending, or implementing goal setting for physical activity, with the goal of meeting the health needs and expectations of individuals and populations and improving population health outcomes.

Participants will be required to remotely undertake an online questionnaire. Participation should take around 10-15 minutes and is completely voluntary. Questions for this research will be related to goal setting, which could evoke previous negative experiences of utilising goal setting in your own practice, or your practice with others, which although unlikely, could cause distress. Therefore, if such topics are likely to cause you distress, it is advised that you do not participate.
