The physiological roots of behaviour in the therapy room: Why do clinicians drift away from evidence-based practice?


Project Description

While we know that clinicians deliver psychotherapy ineffectively in many cases, we are only beginning to understand why they do so. One key element is the clinicians’ own levels of anxiety. However, anxiety is a multifaceted construct, with cognitive, behavioural and physiological elements. This PhD will centre on understanding psychotherapy practice as it is influenced by the different facets of therapists’ own emotions, and will use a mixed methods approach, including experimental and psychophysiological approaches.
