February is Psychology Month! In order to celebrate, we would like to showcase our Department, and focus on enhancing well-being. With that in mind, we will be publishing “Psychology Insights”, wellness tips from our faculty member that contribute to coping strategies, stress reduction, building resilience, or generally enhancing well-being. Visit us on our website every Tuesday and Thursday this month for a new tip!
Go easy on yourself and take some time out. It’s ok if you’re not as productive as you were before the pandemic.
Why it works:
My tip is from purely personal experience and anecdotal evidence (I know, not great for a researcher!). We’re running a marathon fighting covid, not a sprint. Find something that you enjoy doing, something that is yours, and take time out each day to it and recharge.
About Dr. Luther:
My research interests revolve around improving investigative interviewing practices. Specifically, my research works toward ensuring that adults and youth arrested or detained by the police understand their legal rights – mainly their Right to Silence and Right to Legal Counsel – in order to protect both them and the police investigation. I also conduct research looking at how we can improve the accuracy and completeness of information obtained by witnesses, victims, and suspects. Even though I’d like to pretend that I have some interesting hobbies, when I am not conducting research, I am busy chasing around and entertaining three little rascals.
