The Centre for Research in Psychology and Sport Sciences coordinates research in the corresponding Department, primarily in the context of the University’s Health research theme. Within this Health theme, psychological/mental health and sports-related interventions are significant sub themes.
The Centre brings together the work of approximately 45 members of academic and research staff, as well as around 75 doctoral-level students, eight of whom are supported by Centre studentships. The Centre enjoys collaborative research links with the Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Trust, particularly through links with our Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme. The Centre also supports the development of research impact, for example through links with charities and other user-groups.
