What can psychology tell us about managing the challenges encountered when living with and beyond illness?

presented by


Professor Pamela Gallagher


6pm - 7pm
School of Nursing and Human Sciences, Dublin City University, Glasnevin, Dublin 9



With medical and technological advances, there are increasing numbers of people surviving illnesses and injuries, and often living with long-term consequences and challenges. This has resulted in a growing interest in looking at ways in which psychology can help us to understand the impact of living with and beyond illness and injury and to promote wellbeing.

Drawing on recent research, this talk will consider how we can assess that people are doing well, what are the factors that influence why some people do better than others, and ways to promote living well with and beyond illness, injury and its treatment.
