Social and Work Psychology

Part of our research team are involved in research in the areas of occupational psychology (inter-professional working and professional identity) and social psychology. Some examples of research led by our colleagues in this field are:

  • Inter-group relations with a focus on understanding how history and politics shape how we relate, perceive and treat others different from us.
  • Anti-immigration sentiments in the current climate of increased populism.
  • Bullying and resilience within the workplace.
  • The role of assessments in learning: how regulatory assessment affects professional identity and ethics.
