The Self-Regulation in Health and Well-Being Lab conducts research focused on understanding the factors that create risk or resilience for health and well-being as they relate to self-regulation and motivation. In particular, our research investigates the affective, cognitive, and behavioural dynamics of personality traits and states that create vulnerability for poor self-regulation with the aim of understanding ways to create resilience. To this end, our research also examines the role of positive psychology traits, states, and interventions for supporting self-regulation and enhancing health and well-being.
