Research into effects of kayaking incidents and accidents


Hayley Segal, a third year student studying Bachelor of Adventure
Recreation and Outdoor Education at Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, is seeking kayakers who have undergone an accident or incident. The purpose of the project is to gain knowledge and information so the kayak community can gain some understanding and insight into the effects a traumatic kayak accident can have on someone. The interest for this research is to find out the recovery process and whether the accident experienced has affected motivation and confidence. The research will be interview-based but the published results. will ensure anonymity. If you have an interesting story to tell about a kayaking accident or incident and you would like to take part, please contact Hayley at [email protected]
