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

 Primary supervisor: Prof G Waller

Co-supervisor: Dr L Levita

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.

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.
