Welcome to the Well Minds Lab!

Our research investigates the developmental psychological and neurocognitive processes underlying wellbeing across the lifespan. We also examine changes in these processes resulting from wellbeing interventions, particularly those cultivating mindfulness, compassion and other healthy qualities of mind. Our research has implications for educational and healthcare policy on wellbeing promotion and prevention of mental ill-health. The lab is headed by Dr. Dusana Dorjee, she is an associate professor in the Psychology in Education Research Centre in the Department of Education at the University of York in the UK.
