We are interested in learning from you about your experiences relating to possessions.

We are looking for people who:

  • have problems with collecting and keeping clutter and have a childhood/adolescent experience of them and/or their family suddenly (in under a year) losing all or nearly all of their possessions

OR

  • have problems with collecting and keeping clutter and do not have a childhood/adolescent experience of them and/or their family suddenly (in under a year) losing all or nearly all of their possessions

OR

  • do not have problems with collecting and keeping clutter (whether or not they have a childhood/adolescent experience of them and/or their family suddenly losing all or nearly all of their possessions)

You will need to be aged at least 18 years to take part. Participating in the research will take 30-60 minutes, and involve completing a digital/telephone interview and/or online questionnaires. Some questions will ask about your past and current psychological wellbeing, and about your past experiences of material deprivation.
