Thesis title: Positive Body Image in Chinese Adolescents and a School-Based Promotion Programme


My research interest in acknowledging mental health in school settings developed through a winding path. As an undergraduate, I started off my study in Psychology at Beijing Normal University, when I focused on educational psychology and intervention programmes to promote children's reading abilities. Proceeding that, I pursued my Master's degree in Psychology of Education at UCL Institute of Education, where I developed an interest in mental health, especially that of young people's. Naturally, mental health education comes to my mind.
