The Chimp Paradox has lots of anecdotal evidence of success but we want to produce evidence through research of its validity and efficacy. If we are able to do this, it means this therapy could be available to help more people, in order to help them get the best out of themselves.
The Chimp Paradox describes a conceptual Model of the human mind. Professor Steve Peters, a Consultant Psychiatrist and Chief Executive Officer of Chimp Management Limited created this model. Steve and his experienced team of doctors and psychologists specialise in helping others be the best they can be and achieve psychological well-being. The Model helps people working in all works of life including public services, the corporate sector, education, health and the world of sport. Their daily work is helping clients
to get the best out of themselves and others, using The Chimp Model. The long-term plan is to establish an evidence base for The Chimp Model, with an ambition to move into the area of mainstream psychological care.
To achieve this goal Steve and his team are now collaborating with the Grounded Research Team in Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) to undertake a proof of concept study regarding The Chimp Model. Steve has been working specifically with Dr Adrian
Phillipson who is a consultant psychiatrist within the Trust, who has dedicated sessional time within the research team, and Dr Jaime Delgadillo who is a clinical research fellow in Wellbeing within the Trust who also works
within the Department of Clinical Psychology in the University of Sheffield. An outline protocol is currently being finalised and we anticipate the first part of the study to be initiated within 2018.
Together the group are seeking to work with Industry to fund the initial study by way of charitable donations to the existing RDaSH Charitable Fund for research.
