Event description
‘Using psychological interventions to promote face covering use where required during the COVID-19 pandemic’

About this event

The Centre for Primary Health & Social Care at London Metropolitan University invites you to the next Health Seminar on Wednesday 26 January 2022 at 16:00:

Our speaker will be Dr Dom Conroy, Senior Lecturer in Psychology, London Metropolitan University.

Wearing a face covering during the COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly become part of everyday life. But compliance is varied. In this seminar I will present a theory-based psychological intervention designed to promote adherence to wearing face coverings during the COVID-19 pandemic among participants primarily consisting of London-based Higher Education students. In this presentation I will describe mental imagery interventions, which are low-cost, well-evidenced behaviour change interventions. Imagery interventions demonstrated as efficacious in a range of health-related settings. I will conclude by suggesting that imagery-based interventions to increase face covering wearing adherence may exert significant public health effects but only when conducted on a very large scale. Intervention findings suggest that interventions should target men and disrupt habitual past behaviour. Within this presentation I will explore some of the current options available for recording COVID-19 protective measures in survey research.

Session chair: Prof Yolanda Eraso
