Professor Chris Armitage (Professor of Health Psychology)

October 2019

This episode features Professor Chris Armitage. Chris is a Health Psychologist, a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society.

Chris woks day to day as a Professor of Health Psychology and Director of Research in the University of Manchester Centre for Health Psychology in the School of Health Sciences, and his research uses psychological theory to develop effective behaviour change interventions. He has published over 150 peer-reviewed articles in academic journals in the area of health psychology and social science.

Throughout this episode, Chris provides numerous examples of how behavioural science is being used in the real world and academically and it’s clear that he is acting as a linchpin between the science and the application with practitioners across health and wellbeing.

This episode is filled with useful insights and is well worth a listen. There is even a joke about academics in there (which is ok as Chris is one)! Check it out and leave a comment or review.
