The Psychology of Health and Wellbeing group emerged following recent expansion and intellectual development within the School of Psychology and Counselling.
It accommodates three distinct yet interlinked themes:
The Group has a strong professional grounding as well as theoretical interest in practice and practices. This is either by group members being qualified (as) practitioners (i.e., of counselling or clinical psychology, group analysis, psychotherapy etc), or by alternative ways of engagement with individual, community and political practices that create (un)health and (un)wellbeing. A number of group members are also currently working on the production of the new Level 2 module “Understanding mental health and counselling” (D241).
