Description: People have a range of experiences, from hearing voices, feeling sad and depressed, through to feelings of elation. What determines when people try to regulate their experiences – e.g., to suppress the voices or to try to feel better? Understanding this issue would help to understand who is troubled by experiences and to direct support to those who want it. The Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB; Ajzen, 1991) may be a helpful framework in which to understand this question. According to the TPB, behavioural intentions are determined by three factors: attitude toward the behaviour, subjective norm concerning the behaviour, and perceived behavioural control. The study aim is to determine what factors will influence a person’s intention to regulate their experiences in response to psychotic-like and depressive experiences in the general population. A correlational design will be employed. Participants will be invited to complete an online questionnaire to measure people’s attitudes towards their experiences, perceptions of control, and normative beliefs, as specified by the TPB. This will include questions adapted from the Community Assessment of Psychic Experiences (CAPE), demographic information, and measures of mood.
