Despite many years of research, diagnosis of dyslexia (specific literacy difficulties) is patchy and inconsistent, with some individuals only being identified in adolescence and adulthood. There also continues to be debate as to whether the label dyslexia is a useful one. This project will explore the impact of receiving a diagnosis of dyslexia in childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Do individuals who receive a diagnosis view it as a positive step or as a limitation? Do children identified as dyslexic show better progress over time than those with similar skills who were not identified as dyslexic?
This PhD studentship will build off recent findings from our group exploring how the Interpersonal Psychological Theory of Suicide (IPTS) interacts with autism and autistic traits in predicting suicidal behaviour. Initial findings indicate that self-reported autistic traits in the general population increase risk of experiencing the proximal risk factors for suicidal behaviour (perceived burdensomeness and belongingness), in a student sample (Pelton and Cassidy, Under Review).
Research on the emotions of groups such as crowds, teams and people in organisations emphasises the role of social identity but still relies on problematic explanatory mechanisms such as emotional contagion or the “circulation” of affect. In this PhD topic, you will work with the supervision team to develop new experimental, quantitative, survey and/or qualitative empirical studies of the details of people’s experiences, expressions and widely shared forms of behaviour and/or action with regard to group-based and coordinated, collective emotions such as pride, anger, or shame.
The aim of this PhD research is to examine the resilience/protective/developmental factors in children in the UK who have experienced maltreatment to determine what factors differentiate between those that experience adverse outcomes and those that do not. The objective is to improve knowledge about relevant risk and protective factors, critical intervention points, and specific treatment or management targets.
