Dr Catrin Eames

School of Psychology

Dr Catrin Eames is a Reader in Psychology. She is interested in the social determinants of mental health, exploring both risk and protective factors. Her main interests lie in investigating the mechanisms associated with mindfulness and compassion focused approaches (commonly termed 'third-wave' psychological therapies, which include meditative practices) in increasing resilience and reducing vulnerabilities to mental distress. Adopting a trans-diagnostic approach, Dr Eames' work has focussed on populations at greatest psychological vulnerability and socio-economic disadvantage, demonstrating dispositional mindfulness and self-compassion as protective factors against distressing cognitions and/or experiences. She supports work exploring protective factors for suicide prevention.
