Comprehensive Life Survey

Dear Survey participant

I am conducting research for a PhD in Consulting Psychology. The title of my thesis is:

“An Exploratory study of midlife transition in South Africa – In search of the midlife crisis.”

I am at an advanced stage in my quest and have developed a model, constructed some measurement instruments and conducted a pilot study to establish construct validity. One of the instruments is an adaptation of a questionnaire used by Polish and Dutch researchers together with my own work.

The total survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. Please also ask your spouse or partner and friends or work colleagues who are over 30 years old to complete it as well.

I would really appreciate it if you could assist me by completing the questionnaire as soon as possible.

After you have completed the survey a voucher will be issued which entitles you to a report once the data has been analysed. A copy of the summary of the final Thesis will also be sent to you if you request this.

Yours Sincerely

Larry Palk
