Fully Funded PhD Scholarship in Psychology at the University of Sheffield

University of Sheffield

This is one of many projects in competition for the current funding opportunities available within the Department of Psychology

Project title: What use do patients make of therapy between sessions?

Primary supervisor: Prof G Hardy

Project description: There is evidence that psychological therapies are effective for the treatment of psychological distress. Most therapies involves meeting with the therapist once a week for a maximum of one hour. Some therapies, particularly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, set homework to be carried out between therapy sessions. Other therapies may not do this, but there is the expectation that processing work will continue and that the patient will reflect on their therapy sessions. This project will investigate this inter-session work from patients' and therapists' perspectives.

Start date: 1 October 2017

Requirements:  Applicants must have a minimum of a first class or high upper second-class undergraduate honours degree and a distinction or high merit at Masters level in psychology or a related discipline.
