About the Event
I will present basic and applied research from the Physical Activity and Well-Being (PAW) Lab at the School of Psychology at Curtin University. The aim of this line of research is to show how motivational factors are experimentally manipulated in lab and community settings to guide effective goal striving, and improve health behaviours, work-related outcomes, and psychological well-being. I will present research in work settings but also with diverse community groups. I will also propose ideas for collaboration with FOWI staff, and I would be keen to hear thoughts and suggestions from FOWI staff about possible collaborations in terms of grant applications, papers, and student supervision.
