York St John University

Research expertise:

School of Health Sciences: Biomedical Sciences, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, and Health related Continuing Professional Development. Majority of research relates to primary, secondary and / or tertiary health care, social care or occupational science – rather than to public health. So staff research mainly relates to people with existing health conditions. Some staff in Biomedical sciences are working with colleagues in the School of Sport on studies with a public health focus. School of Psychology and Social Sciences: counselling psychology, examination of health inequalities using large scale data, Cognitive Control Training as an intervention for reduction of anxiety and depression, Complementary and alternative medicines (CAM), medical education, pain management with virtual reality, CBT. School of education: gambling behaviours. School of Sport: mental health, physical activity and cardiovascular health. Computer science: online gambling behaviour.
