About Cate

My current research is broadly in the area of women's wellbeing; specific projects include female self-harming behaviour in general and social psychological factors implicated both in engaging in self-harm and in recovery as well as the construction of  notions of 'risk' and 'resilience'.

I teach in the social psychology programme.

Research Interests

My research interests are centred around psycho-social factors in the wellbeing of young people, especially young women. These interests include

  • initiation and cessation of deliberate self-harm, especially in young women, including help-seeking.
  • anti-social behaviour
  • resilience amongst young 'at risk' women.

I have also published on public perceptions of the forensic use of DNA, and research methods.

Please note that some of the publications listed are in my previous name, Wilson
