Asha Ladwa


PhD Researcher in Psychology (ESRC +3)
College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter

Start date: March 2017

Research topic: Examining how, why and for whom psychological treatments for depression work

Currently there are effective psychological treatments for depression available, but we still do not know how and why these treatments work. Consequently, I will be using secondary data to investigate the processes that are related to patterns of depression symptom change within Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Behavioural Activation.

Research supervisors: Dr Heather O'Mahen, Dr Kim Wright, Professor Adele Hayes (University of Delaware)
