The assessment of emotion in psychopathology is essential for effective treatment. This assessment can be conducted using self-report (e.g., psychometric questionnaires) and objective measures (e.g., psychophysiological techniques). An important part of our research focuses on the assessment of emotions and their association with psychopathology.
Perth Emotion & Psychopathology Lab
The Perth Emotion & Psychopathology Lab is based at the University of Western Australia. The Directors, A/Prof Rodrigo Becerra and Dr David Preece, are practicing psychologists and researchers whose main interests centre on emotions and their role in the aetiology and maintenance of psychological disorders.
In spite of a vast amount of research on emotions and psychological disorders, clinical research on the junction of these two constructs is less prolific. We welcome Honours, PhD students, and volunteers who would like to join our lab.
