The development of well being and its links with psychopathology


   Department of Psychology

About the Project

Nurturing psychological well being across development has become an important issue in educational policy. Debate continues over the extent to which well being is at the opposite end of a continuum of psychopathology or whether it is a separable construct. This project will use large-scale existing datasets to examine the longitudinal associations between well being and common forms of psychopathology such as anxiety, depression and conduct problems. This project would be particularly suited to someone wishing to develop skills in advanced quantitative methodologies.
