Thesis title: Exploring the relationship between attachment, emotion regulation, and depression across cultures: The case between Vietnam and Scotland
After graduating with a First Class in MA(Hons) Psychology at the University of St Andrews in June 2017, I started my PhD here in Edinburgh in September 2017, with a focus on cross-cultural aspects of depression. In particular, I am looking at the relationship between attachment, emotion regulation and depression in adolescents and young adults, and how it varies across different cultures, specifically Vietnam and Scotland.

I am interested in exploring the relationship between attachment, emotion regulation (specifically, cognitive reappraisal, suppression, and rumination) and depression.
