Dr Zelda Di Blasi BA, MPsychSc, PhD, PGDTLHE
|I am passionate about Positive and Health Psychology (e.g. theoretical, methodological and practical issues in stress & its
management; the role of positive affect in wellbeing; the placebo effect and how this can be harnessed in health care). I
am also interested in Social Psychology, particularly the Social Psychology of Good and Evil. With regards to research methods,
I am interested in systematic reviews and randomized controlled trials.
