Description


The Pyschological Society of Birkbeck presents:


"The other side of fear"


Saturday 31st January


Starts: 1pm



With Speaker: Nazanin Derakshan,


Nazanine derakshanNazanin Derakshan is a Professor of Experimental Psychopathology, in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck University of London, and a former Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellow in Experimental Psychopathology.

She has conducted extensive research into understanding the cognitive and neural mechanisms behind the effects of anxiety and depression on cognitive performance, with a number of a number of key papers including highly cited theoretical articles published.

Her work shows how deficits in attentional control and processing efficiency can be improved by engaging and targeting working memory capacity, with direct implications in education and clinical health where enhancing processing efficiency can help protect against trait anxiety and depression.



In this Exclusive Talk
Prof Derakshan will discuss how psychological flexibility can pave the way towards resilience and a richer more meaningful life.

Drawing from her recent personal experience of fighting breast cancer, and as an active member of the Younger Breast Cancer Network of UK (YBCN), she will highlight how embracing the experience of emotions such as anxiety, sadness and fear can make us stronger and cognitively as well as psychologically flexible.



‘The other side of fear’ presents new theoretical insights into understanding how emotional vulnerability can be adaptive and instrumental in enhancing the quality of our lives."
