Trauma is a reaction that can be experienced following an event(s) that psychologically and/or physically threaten a person’s sense of safety. For example, after experiencing or witnessing a violent act or physical threat to life, or where a person is made to feel unsafe, invalidated, powerless, or ashamed. Trauma reactions vary and can range from minor disruptions in daily life to fully debilitating responses.

Evidence supports that engaging in regular physical activity is beneficial for mental health problems associated with experiences of trauma (e.g., decreases to depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances). Despite the widely accepted benefits of physical activity, relatively little is known about how to enhance the provision of physical activity for those who have experienced trauma specifically. Therefore, research is needed to understand how to best support those who have experienced different types of trauma to be regularly active.

In collaboration with Mind, the mental health charity, and using a mixed methods approach, this PhD will explore perceptions and experiences of trauma-informed approaches to physical activity promotion and delivery. The PhD will identify, and test, effective strategies that can facilitate sustainable physical activity behaviour for those who have experience of trauma.

There is an opportunity for SSEHS Doctoral Researchers to be based at Loughborough in London for the duration of part or all of their PhD with the prior agreement of the primary supervisor/supervisory team. This is applicable to projects with no significant laboratory element. Occasional travel to Loughborough will be required and the School will fund one return trip to Loughborough each month (for supervisory meetings etc.). A laptop will be provided to the student and hot desk space can be accessed at Loughborough in London (as well as Loughborough during any visits).
