Applied developmental psychology
Applying theories and models from developmental psychology to community, education, mental health, social justice and social care settings.
Our department includes international expertise on child development and lifelong developmental processes in mental health and wellbeing. This involves researching factors that impact our mental health and wellbeing and to consider how these change as we grow from infancy right through to older age. We have a focus on translational research - exploring how we can apply knowledge about developmental processes to improve psychological interventions and treatments.
The majority of our staff working in this area are aligned with the Centre for Applied Developmental Psychology, so please explore the Centre's webpage to learn more.
