The Clinical and Wellbeing Group within the ARU Centre for Mind and Behaviour brings together an interdisciplinary group that leads biopsychosocial research focusing on psychological distress and its amelioration in both clinical and non-clinical populations.
Current research includes uncovering the psychological, cognitive and physiological mechanisms underlying stress, mental health problems (including anxiety, OCD and ADHD), as well as those resulting from the consequences of physical ill-health and neurological conditions (e.g., acquired brain injury).
We also develop and evaluate psychological interventions, and conduct feasibility assessments, with the aim of advancing psychological, physical and mental health and improving wellbeing.
