Research summary

The objective of my research is to reveal people’s self-perceptions and attitudes towards themselves utilizing the analysis of spatial processes, and furthermore, to explore the potential of changing such self-perceptions in a more positive direction. It is obvious that this project has potential for interventions applied to people suffering from longer-lasting depressed mood (sub-clinical level), as well as patients suffering from depression or anxiety, or any other negative emotions negative self-perception and negative self-appraisal.
