Factors that facilitate or inhibit positive other-regard. Positive other-regard includes activism, altruism, campaigning, charity, citizenship, consideration, courtesy, donating (e.g., blood, organs), helping, prejudice-reduction, volunteering, and a variety of other prosocial behaviours. Important facilitators include a sense of caring, duty, empathy, or responsibility. Important inhibitors include moral myopia (short-sightedness) and selfishness. I also have a special interest in qualitative research methods.
I am the course organiser for and the sole instructor on an optional third-year undergraduate course: The Psychology of Altruism and Helping Behaviour (C8014).
I am the course organiser for and the sole instructor on a Master's 'mini-module': Qualitative Methods (982C8). I also teach 'Grounded Theory' on the second-year undergraduate Research Methods course (C8057).
I also have significant teaching responsibilities on Personality and Individual Differences (C8034: a compulsory second-year undergraduate course) and teach 'Communication Skills' to first- and second-year undergraduate medical students in Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS).
I also supervise third-year undergraduate psychology projects (up to 8 per year) and the projects of students on various Masters-level courses (different numbers each year). I also supervise research projects of 4th-year undergraduate medical students (1 a year, on average). Finally, I am currently first supervisor for one PhD student and second supervisor for another.
