Social Psychology and Psychological Disorders

This area of research has generated treatments currently recommended as first-line interventions in four NICE clinical guides. We have developed new psychological treatments for four anxiety disorders: panic, social anxiety, health anxiety and PSTD. We have also identified new ways to reduce inter-group conflict and prejudice and with working with economists, we have helped increase public access to effective psychological therapies in the NHS.
