Alex Byron Barker
Im Alex, I studied Psychology at Derby University. My Undergraduate project investigated whether high or low self esteem could predict cognitive deficits caused by a learned helplessness condition and have gone on to study MSc Psychological Wellbeing and Mental Health at Nottingham Trent University. There, I am currently researching the effects of Optimism on Psychological Wellbeing, specifically to see if dispositional optimism has a different effect on psychological wellbeing than explanatory optimism.
