The research we conduct in the Self-Regulation in Health and Well-Being Lab is focused on understanding the factors that create risk or resilience for health and well-being as they relate to self-regulation and motivation. Of particular interest are the states and traits that enhance or inhibit emotional and behavioural regulation, and the consequences for health and well-being.
The resilience factors we study include self-compassion, gratitude, time orientation, hope, thriving, and perceived control.
The risk factors we study include procrastination, perfectionism, insecure attachment, and loneliness
