Centre for Psychological Research

The Centre for Psychological Research (CPR) is focused on high-quality research that advances psychological theory and practice in ways that are of benefit to individuals and society.

We are advancing the discipline in ways that reflect the changes in society. For example, the increasing use of digital technologies leads us to research in cyberpsychology.

As a discipline, we conduct research in a broad range of topics and with a diverse range of methodological approaches. We conduct research which is inclusive, transformative, rigorous and are committed to the cause of Open Science.

Join our Regular Meetings

The CPR has monthly 'open' meetings, the purpose of which is to provide research-related training/professional development, discussion and decision-making on key research priorities, knowledge-sharing and collaboration. We see multi-disciplinary collaboration as important for the health of our research and we cordially invirte anyone from across the University to join us where there is an interest in working together. The meeting schedule for the coming months is detailed below. Please contact Dr Niall Galbraith (n.galbraith@wlv.ac.uk) or Alex Worton (a.worton2@wlv.ac.uk) if you wish to join us.
