Research summary

The objective of my research is to reveal people’s self-perceptions and  attitudes towards themselves utilizing the analysis of spatial processes, and  furthermore, to explore the potential of changing such self-perceptions in a more positive direction. It is obvious that this  project has potential for interventions  applied to people suffering from longer-lasting depressed mood (sub-clinical level), as well as patients suffering from depression or anxiety, or any other negative emotions negative self-perception and negative  self-appraisal.
