In conversation with Dr Denise Quinlan

Throughout a flourishing career, her research has been published in International academic journals and several edited volumes. Denise shared her insights in an equally candid and considered chat, touching on an array of concepts including psychological safety, ruthless prioritisation and radical acceptance. When asked why she is in the wellbeing space, Denise responded, “the deep, deep, truth is that you teach what you need to learn.” As a self-confessed ‘recovering pessimist’, it is perhaps Denise’s humility that allows her to share views on wellbeing psychology in such a relatable way.

The Nature of Awe

Awe may well be described as one of the most profound human experiences, yet scientific study into this emotion has only emerged since the early 2000s. Although its roots are entwined in early history, mythology and religion - Awe is relatively new to the study of psychology and neuroscience
