A postgraduate psychology student at the University of Liverpool, Rebecca Purewal is collecting data for research on the association of metacognitive beliefs in diabetes patients. The research is in the form of a short series of questionnaires measuring anxiety, depression, metacognitive beliefs, worry and illness perceptions. The outcome of the research will be to help diabetes patients in terms of reducing vulnerability to depression by modifying metacognitive beliefs using metacognitive therapy rather than traditional cognitive therapies.
