To begin to submit your story, click on the specific experience of interest above. Clicking the particular lived
experience picture will direct you to guided questions that will help to outline your experience. Your
participation will take between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the amount of detail you provide.
At no time will you be asked to provide information that can personally identify you (like name, date of birth,
or address). I am interested in learning about people’s stories, not in knowing who people are. Also, you will
not be asked to provide any personal contact information, nor will you be required to establish login
credentials. Beyond the time needed to complete the online forms, no additional time will be required. Your
participation in a LEN research project is entirely voluntary.
By amassing an array of diverse experiences, we can help to inform professionals in caring roles about how they
can better understand the meaningfulness of people’s lived experiences.
Thank you again for your interest in the LEN Program of Research. It is exciting to think about the understanding
that is possible with a diverse range of stories about people’s experiences with suspicion, lying, hope, being
misunderstood, a sense of ‘you get me’, road rage, forgiveness, and mistakes.
