Paul Morris (Paul Graham Morris)
Lecturer in Health Psychology
I joined the academic team in 2002. Amongst other roles, I co-ordinate health psychology teaching and was Research Director for the DClinPsychol programme from Nov 2010 until March 2014, developing our DClinPsychol research training to facilitate development of transferable research skills, greater dissemination of findings from thesis projects and the establishment of programmes of research. In more recent years I have taken the academic lead on our joint NHS / university selection process.
Outside of work I like the great outdoors, enjoying both long treks in the hills, cycling and more gentle strolls. I enjoy playing tennis and am involved in projects which support a more sustainable approach to the environment. This is reflected in my research interest in the wellbeing benefits of greenspaces.
Open to PhD supervision enquiries?
My main research interests include:
- Values, Value Directed Living and their associations with Health, Wellbeing and behaviours
- The Wellbeing benefits of engaging with GreenSpaces
- Unexplained symptoms / Functional Disorders
- Anxiety, Stress Reduction & Mindfulness
I would be interested in hearing from anyone considering a PhD project in any of these areas.
