Project Seeks People with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities for Interviews & Survey

  [ Not Yet Rated ]   [ Discuss This Article ] • November 24, 2008

If you have had environmental sensitivities for 5 years or more:

The MCS/Environmental Sensitivities Research Team at James Madison University* is interested in interviewing you. The 30-minute audiotaped phone interview will focus on “what it is like to experience sensitivities and to interact with others in a chemical culture.”

The resulting information will be used for educational purposes and employed as the basis of conference presentations & possibly articles for publication. Findings will be expressed in the aggregate, and though individuals’ specific experiences and quotes may be used to illustrate points, the identities of all participants will be strictly confidential.

If you are interested, go to the MCS/ES Research Team Current Studies web page for contact information and to complete a short demographic questionnaire as a first step in study participation.

And if, as an MCS/ES patient, you have received services from mental health providers:

You may wish to complete the MCS/ES Research Team’s survey to examine MCS patients’ “Perceptions of Services Received from Mental Health Providers.”

As they note: “People with sensitivities end up in the offices of mental health providers for a variety of reasons: for counseling, for evaluations in regard to disability applications or as requested by Vocational Rehabilitation, or when referred by a physician who perceives the problem to be psychological. There may be other reasons as well.

“We are interested in the treatment that people receive, whether they are accommodated by these providers, and their perceptions of how knowledgeable mental health providers are regarding sensitivities.

“In addition, as part of this study we invite anyone who has received a psychological evaluation from a psychologist to submit it so we can examine how people with sensitivities are being construed by psychologists. There has been an ongoing movement to frame MCS/ES as a psychological illness. We believe it is physical and would like to attempt to begin discussion of the ways that persons with MCS are framed in evaluations.”
